I’ve been reading some wonderful and recommendable biographies lately,
dealing with the nomadic pre-war Paris music and art scene - like
Michael Dregni’s “Django. The Life and Music of a Gypsy Legend” (2004),
Paul Balmer's "Stéphane Grappelli. With and Without Django" (2003) and
Phyllis Rose’s “Jazz Cleopatra. Josephine Baker in Her Time (1990). I
thought it would be cool to pull another sonic thread here. I’ve made a
rather uncritical, yet entertaining compilation, mixing Django’s (&
Stéphane Grappelli’s) Hot Club Jazz with several Musette predecessors
and some Louisiana based Cajun music - both Musette & Cajun are
known for their waltzes. You could call the result French Blues (or
perhaps Blues Gitane). The tracks were recorded in the 1930’s and the
instruments always include a guitar, an accordion and/or a violin. All
three genres are fuelled by a variety of social, cultural and musical
influences. And it’s passionate music.
