Found a Gypsy Jazz Blog

I came across a this site with some interesting music on it. The Boulou album is a treat. It's a bit of a pain to download those rapidshare links, you have to scroll down to the bottom, click "Free", wait 50-70 seconds, enter in the colored text in the box, and click download. Also delete ...

Lots of 'em

...chord in the Robin Nolan gig book that was 'wrong'. There are lots of wrong chords in the Nolan Book, if by right you mean the chords played in the original Django tunes. For example, Nolan introduces a lot of ii-V changes where just a V is played- I guess he wants it to sound more modern and ha...

Looks like nobody has posted this tune, unless my searches are failing. Here's is my stab at the Hot Club version, comments and revisions welcome... basically rhythm changes in D and in Bb for the bridge.

Joscho is a great player, untouchable technique. IMHO he's a bit of a Stochelo Clone, but hey Stochelo is great too!

I feel as if the question "would Django laugh at us" exposes some paradoxes in Django's music and his legacy. His music is very improvisational but is also riff-based. His music is very esoteric but utilizes mainstream standard melodies and chord structures. Players of "Django's Music...

Companion CD for Robin Nolan Gig Book

I just finished putting together a companion CD for the Robin Nolan Gig Book (the little one with 76 tunes). The CD has only the introduction and heads for the songs, which in my opinion is the best way to learn the tune (flames welcome), and it also allows all 76 songs to be on one CD. I chose Djan...

Fleur D'Oasis

Fleur D'Oasis(Raphael Fays) - this tune caught me recently as a pretty neat melding of gypsy jazz and flamenco(or something?). The chords sound pretty straightforward, but does anyone happen to have tabs?

I got sick of looking at the mangled French characters on the django discography page, and I hated the way I couldn't search the whole document, so my employer paid for me to fix it (wink). Enjoy! Also send me typos or requests...

I recommend Soundforge 6.0 if you can get it. You can slow down, speed up(why?!), change pitch, EQ, cut and paste, loop, spectrum analyze, change key, Mix, encode to mp3, and record from microphone. That's what I know, and there are 1000 more features. There seem to be some free versions around... e...
