Indians by The Samois Film Orchestra

Post by BaZa »

Hey guys,

I have the pleasure to inform you of a new addition to the GJ world, both in album and in group form.

The Samois Film Orchestra is quite a group, with 11 musicians from 7 nationalities who live in 4 countries, and get together every year at the Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois Sur Seine.

You get rhythm sections from the Thomas Baggerman Trio (NL) and the Remi Harris Trio (UK), soloists are Stian Vagen Nilsen (Jazz Banditt, NO), Remi Harris (UK), Xavier Vayre (FR), Bar Zalel (ISR / FR).
Romanian touch thanks to James Byron Twyford (AUS/FR) who treats you to some great bowing on double bass.
With Corentin Giniaux (FR) on clarinet & bass clarinet and Matt Holborn (UK) on violin, you get a real wall of sound, GJ style.

The Orchestra's album is all original compositions. Indians is an independant production and is available (for 10 euros!) exclusively on

You can listen to the entire album on the link, and for the fashion concious of you, there's a limited run of hand printed ORC 5TRA Tshirt up for grabs here.

More news from The Orchestra (vids for making of, who are these clowns, as well as jams from recording days) are available at

Hope you enjoy it!
