Thought I had it, but I can't seem to find it. In the meantime, there's this:

Alors?...Voila!

I might also have a chart for Esprit kicking around; I lent out my fake book, though, so it'll probably be awhile. J'Attendrai, All of Me, and It Had to Be You are all readily available, though.

Right. Try this for Esprit:

Gm D7 Gm Gm/G7 Bdim Ddim Cm7 Cm D7 Ebdim Bb Gm7 A7 A7 Eb9 D9

Gm F#dim Gm Gm/G7 Fdim Ddim Cm7 Cm D7 Ebdim Gm7 Gm A7 A7 D7 D7

Cm7 F9 Bbmaj7 Bb6 A7 A7 Eb9 D9 Cm7 F9 Bbmaj7 Bb6 Eb9 D9 Gm D7

(repeat first eight bars)
D7 F#dim Gm Gm7 A7 D7 Gm D7

One bar per chord, except the two to the bar slashed chords.
(Edit: You can find Lyola in Colin Cosimini's Gypsy Jazz Chord Book volume 2, along with a ton of other great tunes; it's worth every cent, you'll impress your pals, and it's available right here in the shop, with a CD and all. Check it out.)

Thanks for supplying those chords - they sound right on to me playing along with the CD. Your right, its a great tune, and even though some players considerTchavolo heavy handed, I like his snappy playing, timing, and joy he brings to a tune.

Tchavolo is basically a great rhythm player who plays some lead--thats why he's perfect to learn from--he's the modern gypsy style in it's 'pure' state--had a huge influence on Romane, Ninine and Angelo and countless others basd in Paris in the '70's.....
'Joy' is the key word here--the passion of Tchavolo is more important than 'clever' bebop licks---the SOUND he makes is the most important thing in this Music
If i want to listen to Bebop i listen to Tal or Jimmy Raney(with Stan Getz at Storyville)
Django is my favourite MUSICIAN of all time--but ironically sometimes you can learn more from the mere 'mortals' who use his 'basic' technique (eg Tchavolo,Moreno and Matcho for example] to express their feelings about this considerably more complicated world than Django could possibly have imagined.
Off to practice now.....

Right on - an interesting idea. I hadn't thought of Tchavolo as a great rhythm player who takes leads, but it makes sense and is surely a compliment in an era when the emphasis seems very much the other way round.

I've been listening to Django for well over 40 years and I'm only belatedly catching up with the 'new' players, but I've not been as impressed by a modern performance as much as by Tchavolo, Mandino, Sony et al. at Esprit last year. As Stu says it's the joy and the passion and that great sound. It's the life in the music.

Hi there !

Sometimes I think it sounds nice if
you play a F#7 on 3 and 4 in the second bar on "alors+...Voila!",like this:


\G69 \ G69 F#7\G69 \ --\

What do you think?


Have a nice day!
