Django Reinhardt 1937 (3)-1938 (1) - Intégrale, vol. 7

1937 was an important year for many reasons. Firstly, despite the Spanish Civil War, it was considered as being the last year of peace. The temperature steadily rose the following year, strongly indicating the inevitable and leaving perhaps only Chamberlain optimistic. In 1937, however the French must have had an inkling of what was in store, but pretented that nothing was amiss and even organised the last of the veritable Universal Exhibitions. Musicieans of every kind steamed in from overseas and the "Moulin Rouge" gave an authentic "Cotton Club" revue. Thanks to Charles Delaunay and Hugues Pannasié, the "Swing" label got aff the ground, being the first to uniquelyconcentrate on all forms of jazz. And it really was the first, as in New York Milt Gabler launched "Commodore" with roughly the same ideals, nearly a year later.
In 1937 Charles Delaunay, unknown to the sophisticated Americans, managed to record some sophisticated Americans in his own heathen land, namely Coleman Hawkins, Benny Carter, Eddie South, Teddy Wheatherford, Bill Coleman and Dick Wells. But perhaps these poor souls, under the influence of the berried and bicyling Frogs, actually exchanged their instruments for accordions, maybe even accompanied by the experts in waltzes, Django Reinhardt. It is probably due to these set ideas that our American friends tend to stubbornly tip their hats to "Commodeore" for being the first of its kind, rather than to "Swing".
In actual fact, Django Reinhardt was not playing many waltzes at that time...

Thanks, Melanchthon.

BTW, my hard drives are named Baro, Matelo, Sarane, Challin, Eugene, Roger, Marcel, and Ninnin. The next two I buy will probably be Louis and Emmanuel.
