Django Reinhardt 1940 (2)-1942 - Intégrale, vol. 11

When Django's opening bars of this eleventh volume sounded in late 1940, Marie-Jacques Perrier had left the capital for the provinces, and thus avoided direct contact with occupied radio stations. As it happened, few stations had resumed their broadcasting activities after the events of spring 1940 and the recording studios had largely reduced their workload despite the musical surge at the end of the year. Paradocically enough, during the first couple of occupied years, France emphasied the promotion of its cultural and artistic patrimony and a general nationalistic 'back to the earth' feeling was maintained. As far as music was concerned (and this was with German consent) both old and new works were issued or recycled. One of the most enterprising projects was the first unabridged recording of Debussy's 1904 Pelléas et Mélisande. However, the modified regime naturally entailed a different approach in producing popular music of quality. The Germans first consented to an 'original' form of European jazz as long as it was distinguishable from the American model but then in 1942 eveything changed, including jazz, and the promotion of all French music was brought back into perspective...
