Woking Way House (former Disney Residence) Los Feliz Frank Crowhurst & Walt Disney (1932)
Luanne Homzy, violin; Tommy Davy, guitar; Frank Anastasio, double bass
Sparks fly when this “dazzling!” (San Francisco Chronicle) trio lights up “the house that Mickey built” – a 1932 French Normandy style mansion with vaulted beamed ceilings, intricately painted murals and original stained glass. Led by a French-Canadian composer/arranger/violinist known for her “Olympian tone” (Strings Magazine), this electrifying threesome blends acrobatic technique with the improvisatory language of jazz and the richness of Eastern European folk, including Romanian violin, Russian balalaika, and French "Jazz Hot". And in honor of the former residents... original works inspired by iconic Disney themes — with a Parisian-Russian cabaret flair! “... jewels of gypsy music played with great poise and authenticity... magic is happening" (Radio Centre-Ville, Montreal).
