I recently interviewed Chicago jazz musician Alfonso Ponticelli about his appreciation of Django Reinhardt and his dedication to preserving gypsy jazz.
This is the first non movie related article I ever wrote. It was published by Third Coast Review.
If you live in Chicago, you should check him out at the Green Mill Jazz Club.
