Tobie Medland

If Django Reinhardt, Dmitri Shostakovich and Claude Debussy ever sat down to write an album, the result may not have been too far from violinist Tobie Medland’s vision for The Aviary (July 7th, Future Fable Records).

Known for his work on the gypsy jazz scene - including as founder of the Gypsy Jazz Festival of London - Medland presents a refined, modern, avante-garde and genre spanning take on a style which rose to popularity almost 100 years ago.
