Top 10 Jazz Manouche Records

Postby TedGottsegen » Mon Feb 24, 2003 6:08 am

An oldie but goodie, something that I never get bored talking about. This is Top 10 Jazz Manouche albums, could be Django, could be anyone. The question is this: You've been exiled to a shack in the hills for life. You get food and water and spare guitars strings brought in. You must arrive with your instrument and 10 albums (record, CD, what have you). Which are they?

For me, in no particular order:
1. Jacques Montagne Quartet
2. Tchan-Tchou - Guitar Partie
3. Bousquet - Hommage a Django
4. Django - Verve Masters 38
5. Les Manouches EP - Mondine & Niglo
6. Schnuckenack Reinhardt - Musik Deustcher Zigeuner 1
7. Häns'che Weiss with Titi Winterstein - Swinging with Django
8. Hot Club da Sinti
9. Rosenberg Trio - Seresta
10. Alma Sinti - Rhythme Gitan

I still don't know my ass from my elbow when it comes to most of these guys, but by some strange coincidence(?), I'd just put on 'Alors?...Voila' before I checked this post. Eerie, ain't it? Just came in the mail today.
More as the elbow/ass situation clears.

T'was at the top of my list. The first, though, was a bit of a chore I must say. Some of the later stuff, though, was what inspired my Rookie post about the Infamous Tremolo SlideUp. It's that same sort of too-fast-to-process stuff you find in the Django clip from LobsterFilms (I think that's where it's from).

Cap'n! Any chance of reviving some of the classic threads? Desert Island Discs, How and When, etc. Not that we have to repeat ourselves, but I still have unanswered questions, for cryin' out loud! For starters, who the hell should I be listening to outside of Le Homme? Which albums? I'm dyin' hea!
