Re: Your choices?

Merry Christmas one and all. Everyone else is busy, especially Teddy Dupont, who's preparing for a gig tonight in Leamington Spa, at a "burlesque evening". The dirty old man. My behaviour was exemplary but I'm afraid Bernard had to be escorted from the place after a very unfortunate incid...

It was taken at the same time as this one with the English composer Michael Carr. Some souces say they were taken in 1939 when the Quintette toured the UK and the suits look much more thirties than late forties to me.

There can be no excuses. Bitch slapping is mandatory. Just look at this! Have these publishers no self respect? :evil:

Re: Cloughtoberfest-Irelands first Gypsy jazz festival

Ha ha Teddy. I hope my assumption of irony/sarcasm/tongue firmly in cheek on your part is correct. If not then I will never darken this forum again.

Re: High Quality Rare Django Steph and Joseph Photos

......and here is one of Django and Hubert Fol climbing up the steps out of Club St Germain des Pres in 1951 exactly as it appeared in a newspaper. I think the publishers should have been severely bitch-slapped.

Re: High Quality Rare Django Steph and Joseph Photos

Here is an example of a photo that I have only ever seen in one publication and the print quality of that publication is dire. The original has probably long since been lost...........or perhaps not. 8)
