Brisbane, Calif. — The Paris Swing Co. proudly welcomes Raul Reynoso as an endorser of Paris Swing mandolins.

Raul Reynoso is one of the pioneers of the Gypsy Jazz movement, and has been nominated "Instrumentalist of the Year" three times by the Western Music Association.

He is most noted for his expertise on acoustic guitar and mandolin with a mastery of styles ranging from bluegrass and western swing to '30s jazz in the tradition of the legendary Django Reinhardt.

Raul has taught privately for over 35 years, and has done workshop and clinics for the last fifteen. He is a mentor at the Booher Family Music Camp, and has done workshops with John Jorgenson for the JazzMasters Workshop.

Raul endorses the Nuages oval-hole mandolin. Paris Swing mandolins are available in D-hole, oval-hole and F-hole, and in natural and sunburst. In addition to Raul Reynoso, the Paris Swing Co. has also teamed up with John Jorgenson to produce his signature Paris Swing mandolin.
