Rosenberg Trio

The Rosenberg Trio are two guitarists and one bassist—Stochelo Rosenberg (soloist), Nous'che Rosenberg (rhythm guitar) and Nonnie Rosenberg (double bass) from the Netherlands. Their inspiration is Django Reinhardt, the legendary gypsy guitarist of the 1930s. The Rosenberg Trio's genre has been characterized as Jazz Manouche (Gypsy Swing).

The group's first album was Seresta in 1989. Notable events include the release in 2010 of Djangologists a DVD featuring a recording tribute to Django Reinhardt, and the 1992 live album The Rosenberg Trio: Live at the North Sea Jazz Festival, which captured the trio at an eclectic, youthful highpoint.

There is no exact date before 1989 when the Rosenberg Trio began playing under that name. Two of the Rosenbergs, Nous'che and Nonnie, are sons of Sani Rosenberg, a musician in the Dutch Gypsy community. Having been raised in a very musical family, they all were influenced by the music of Django Reinhardt.

Nous'che started playing with his cousin and buddy, Stochelo Rosenberg, when Stochelo was about 10 years old.

Famous quotes containing the word rosenberg:

    One of the grotesqueries of present-day American life is the amount of reasoning that goes into displaying the wisdom secreted in bad movies while proving that modern art is meaningless.... They have put into practise the notion that a bad art work cleverly interpreted according to some obscure Method is more rewarding than a masterpiece wrapped in silence.
    —Harold Rosenberg (1906–1978)
