Songs from Samois

Postby justjack » Sun Aug 17, 2003 5:41 am

Moving over from the 'Deeper into the manouche' post, where I'd been asking if anyone had kept notes about what was oft played this year. Nwilkins has mentioned the suicidal impulse another take of Bossa Dorado or For Sephora can bring on, and Djangology mentioned Paprika as the one to watch for a future rash of cliff-jumping. Feel free to weigh in with all other comers, for good or ill.

All of Me, it seems, will never leave-not that it should. But I haven't heard of La Foule; any good albums I might find it on, or where I might find a chart? Or did you mean I should avoid these tunes like Le Plague?

The grille for La Foule can be found on the grilles page at gadjodrom.com There is also a transcription (which I've never looked at) here:

http://www.gadjodrom.com/trans/index.ph ... &classt=id

There is a version floating around on the web by Francois Rousseau and Christine Tassan if you can find it, and if not it is on the following albums (in approximate order of availability):

Minor Swing Quartet's "Place des Vosges"
Paris Musette Volume One
Moreno's "Moreno Bolero"
Moreno's "Gypsy Music"
Tchan Tchou's "Nomades"
Maurice Ferre/ Joseph Pouville's "Le Train Gitan"
Ninine and Mondine Garcia's Acoustic LP

As far as other Samois songs go, it depends where you were hanging out (different groups tended to play diff songs), but others that were popular included There Will Never be Another You, Hungaria, Dark Eyes, Minor Swing, I Can't Give You Anything but Love, etc etc

Turns out I did have La Foule after all, but only on an old Piaf disc. Thanks for the ideas. And thanks, too, for the songlists, one and all. Keep 'em coming.

Justin,

I'd be interested to know what voicings you use when playing rhythm on Nagasaki - I have never found any I particularly like, although the song is GREAT!

yeah, your right. i have been playing with the voicings on Nagasaki and everything i try is just a little bit off. i would love to see the chords that Colin would come up with. hopefully he manages to fit it in the next gyspy jazz chord book?

there is something about that C-->C#dim-->G7 thing that is a bit loco, but i haven't really tried to experiment much either.

How about this for "Nagasaki":-

-------------------------------
-------5------5------6-----3----
-------5------3------5-----4----
-------5------5------3-----3----
---3------4------5-------------
-------------------------3------

Repeat above

-------------------------------------------------------------------
--------5------5------6------6------5------3-------5------3--
--------5------5------5------5------5------4-------5------4--
--------5------5------3------3------5------3-------5------3--
---3------------------------------3--------------3--------------
-----------6------5------4---------------3--------------3------

In fact, the same chords as "I Saw Stars".

Teddy, are you thinking of this in a sort of I, I7, IV, IVm way (like you sometimes hear in Rhythm changes)? That little bass walk-down makes all the difference. Thanks!
