March's free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be presented on Wednesday, March 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the library's community room. It will feature guitarist Patrick Berrogain in a program of gypsy jazz. This is a style of jazz often said to have been started by guitarist Jean "Django" Reinhardt in the 1930s. He was foremost among a group of Romani guitarists working in and around Paris in the 1930s through the 1950s, and was noted for combining a dark, chromatic gypsy flavor with the swing articulation of the period. This combination is critical to this style of jazz. His approach continues to form the basis for contemporary gypsy jazz guitar. The program will last 45 minutes. The Library is located at 3919 Townsgate Drive in Carmel Valley. For further information call (858) 552-1668 or see the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library website at www.carmelvalleylibrary.org.
