Django & Meryl Streep

Post by Dennis »

I was watching Meryl Streep's film Julie and Julia with my wife, mildly bored, to say the least.

About a third of the way through, Streep's character's Sister gets married in Paris. And what pops up on the soundtrack? 'Minor Swing' played on what sounded like a Selmac / Stimer combination. No idea who was playing it but it kept me awake for the rest of the movie just in case there was some more. There wasn't...

According to the IMDB site, it was 8 1/2 Souvenirs. Further digging on the web suggests that they're no longer a going concern but their guitarist, Olivier Giraud, now plays with Paris 49.

Some blurb I found about Paris 49 mentions "electrified gypsy guitars".
They may be drinkers, Robin, but they're still human beings.
