Hi,

actually I just posted a topic on the "Welcome" forum before I saw this one...

I can't find the url of it so just copying & pasting it here...

So...

a little message about a promising upcoming gypsy swing CD release.

Just imagine :
- a legendary guitar,
actually an authentic Selmer guitar of 1946,
serial #607 (Django's was #503)

- five young french acoustic guitarists prodigies,
among the best and most promising of their generation :
Sébastien Giniaux, Adrien Moignard, Noé Reinhardt, Richard Manetti and Rocky Gresset.

Give them one day each in the studio, with the Selmer and a rock solid backing band, Ghali Hadefi & David Gastine on guitars and Jeremie Arranger on double bass.

And there you have it : Selmer #607.
16 tracks, about 60 minutes of high class gypsy swing but also true wonders : duets, down-tempo's, waltz, guests, original songs...

Album release is april 12th.

Hit "Selmer 607" in youtube for a little glimpse of what is to come. New videos are added regularly

Loads of extras around the album on the web site,
mp3 samples of every track, chords progressions, backing tracks, videos, b-sides and more to come :

Check out also the MySpace page :

Cheers and let me know what you think...

Well I did think I was gradually making some progress, but after seeing these guys i've decided to burn my guitar and take up billiards. Can't wait to get the album.

That's what I was thinking during the recording sessions... I play guitar, and thought I was ok before meeting & recording these guys, a while ago now.

Adrien Moignard is only 22...

But in a way, it got me back working my instrument... (it wouldn't burn anyway)

Hi Folks,

just to let you know that there is a new video on the website :

"Viper's Dream" by Sébastien Giniaux

or should I say :

Sébastien Giniaux's "Viper's Dream"
(as it will be known by now...)

in my opinion (biased of course), a masterpiece, and the solo featured on this video is only half of it.

It can be seen here : www.selmer607.com/eng/
In the "Bonus / Video" section.

Cheers

André

Hi Folks,

Last updates on the website :

- a new video, a whole track this time, but this is an alternate take, not the actual album take:

"Billets Doux" by Adrien Moignard
(Alternate take)

Believe it or not, the album take is even better...

Check it out at : www.selmer607.com/eng/
In the Bonus / Video section

-----------------------

- Richard Manetti kindly wrote a few words about the project :

It can be read on his page on the website :
www.selmer607.com/eng/artist=richard

-----------------------

You can now download a "Selmer #607" wallpaper, which matches the album cover art.
At the bottom of the "Bonus section"
-----------------------

Cheers

For all of us in the United States, where should we buy the CD? Djangostation I guess?

Is there any way to buy it for a more normal US$ price, like $18.00 or something rather than 15 Euro? The exchange rate is killing me on this one...
