Black Spider Stomp


About this artist...

Decade(s) active:

We say:

Black Spider Stomp are a five piece from Wellington, New Zealand specialising in traditional Gypsy Swing Jazz original compositions in the style of Django Reinhardt and early swing jazz classics.

The talents of these five virtuosic musicians are combined to create a wealth of highly polished original repertoire featuring blazingly swift swing, deep sultry ballads, old-world waltzes and foot-stomping shuffles. They also play vibrant re-imaginings of classic jazz by Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, Django Reinhardt and many others. Constantly evolving and releasing new material, Black Spider Stomp are definitely one of the most exciting gypsy jazz entities to come out of New Zealand.
