Frank Vignola

1966 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genre: Jazz

Long Island-born Frank Vignola discovered the guitar at age 5 and has since revelled in jazz, R&B, rock and pop. At 23, he re-created the Quintette du Hot Club de France, the legendary band founded by his idol Django Reinhardt. In 1988, they were named one of the top ten bands of the year by the New York Times. A string of albums and collaborations soon followed with artists such as Donald Fagen, Bucky Pizzarelli, Queen Latifah and Wynton Marsalis. With his group Vignola Collective, the virtuoso developed a music combining jazz nomade, swing, bluegrass, blues and acoustic rock.
