Hi Phil,

Yes, I've always noticed the similarity. I actually use Bill Evans' piano intro from Blue Green as an intro for Anouman. They're so close harmonicly...it's weird. Especially since Blue and Green was recorded almost 10 years later. And that style of harmony is characteristic of Bill Evans. So it would seem that Django stumbled upon that style of harmony before Evans. However, my guess is that they were both inspired by a classical composer who used those types of ideas. Can't think of who though...need to look into it! Maybe Debussy?

Yes--
It shows an even stronger similarity to Woody Herman's "Early Autumn"(made famous by Stan Getz)
which predates Anouman by a couple of years i think(unlike Blue in Green which obviously post dates Anouman)

Michael, great idea: I was thinking there must be some way to blend the two, or reference the other.

cheers
