“For me, drawing the human figure has always been fundamental to the development of all my other visual endeavors no matter the medium, or how seemingly non assimilated to the human form, they might appear. Although still in it’s nascent state, the open studio figure drawing sessions at CAA have so far been excellent. The Kathryn Schultz Gallery is both clean and well lit. The models very dynamic.“– Kevin Duffy, CAA Member & Figure Drawing Participant

“As an artist I seek to make manifest the non-tangible in the material world. Through visual metaphor I represent the nature of human longing — longing for what we’ve never seen, and for what we have had and have lost; my paintings are about the ongoing emptiness that propels us through time. The human figure is my primary vehicle of expression because the viewer’s natural empathetic response to another’s body renders the expression more vital and clear. But at the same time, my deeper motive is to capture the fleetingness of individual human lives.

Down Beat Magazine states "Snydman's debut recalls the heartland approach of Brian Blade's Fellowship Band" while All About Jazz declares "Fortunate Action deserves serious attention from critics and fans alike." This sentiment is echoed by EJAZZ NEWS saying "Alex Snydman has offered the listening public a new level of sound, with accolade-blanketed reactions" and Brent Black of Critical Jazz declaring the album as "One of the best for 2013...4.5 Stars...on point in every possible fashion

They are veterans of the Newport Jazz Festival, Djangofest Northwest, Musikfest Bethlehem, PA and the National Press Club. The name is derived from two words: American and Manouche, the gypsy tribe of guitarist Django Reinhardt. The rip-roaring ensemble is a super force of hot acoustic Gypsy inspired music mixing Flamenco, Bebop and Jazz swing influences. Played on traditional French jazz guitars, the music is rhythmic, vigorous, and elegant. Whether they're playing a musette waltz from 1930 or an Andalusian inspired original tune, Ameranouche's Gypsy Flamenco Swing style is a fresh and highly enjoyable new sound.

They experienced a surge of popularity with the release of the albums Scream, Dracula, Scream! (1995) and RFTC (1998), accompanied by numerous vinyl singles and EPs released on independent labels.
