Zach Pearson has been playing gypsy jazz professionally for more than 10 years. His first group in the genre, Vol de Nuit, helped expand the traditional repertoire by arranging pieces by composers like Charles Mingus and Wayne Shorter. After several years building that group - and a short stint in Paris learning from the masters of the genre - he joined Ameranouche, where he had the pleasure of playing with one of New England's premier gypsy jazz musicians, Richard Sheppard.

Tomoko Iwamoto has been in Boston jazz scene for more than 25 years. With a strong background as a classical violinist, she expanded her repertoire in jazz while studying Jazz Composition and Arranging at Berklee College of Music. She has played with Hypnotick Clambake and A La Modal, and currently the first violinist and composer & arranger for J-Way (jazz string quartet) and Axis Strings.

440 expands the gypsy jazz tradition of Django Reinhardt and Stephane  Grappelli with danceable swing standards from the era of Cole Porter,  George Gershwin & Benny Goodman as well as originals by the band.   Their toe-tapping, snappy, hot jazz, swinging style is a delight to experience.
