Great work on this Chris! I really enjoyed the overall tone of this. I found this very soothing to listen and the guitar noodling is fantastic! Really enjoyed the movement of the fiddle with the rest of the instruments. Well done!

Hi Chris,

I might be the biggest fan of Gypsy Jazz on the site. I totally love it. Grappelli and Reinhardt are some of my most listened to YouTube visits and this immediately brought them to mind.

This is really nice!

Alan

I stand with Alan on this… Huge gypsy swing fan! Perfectly executed track and I love that you added the tuba, an element that I never would have thought to include in this type of band! Also really like how you ended it on that nice sweet up-note. Great listen on a Sunday morning!

Thanks Joe, Peter, Alan and Tom.
I've used tuba because I think that Dixieland Jazz and Gypsy Jazz have same musical roots. Christian

Chris,

Your Gypsy jazz music is always great!
I think they represent well the spirit of Django Reinhardt.
The chord progression is completely smooth.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

We enjoyed that...a lot!

We've listened to gypsy jazz off and on for many years. We had a friend who could play the style extremely well on fiddle.

Well done!

Intentionally or not, there's something very "30's France" about the whole piece, with the melancholic melody and that chord progression in particular, that I just find completely irresistible.

I have to admit I was sceptical after just looking at that instruments list, which didn't really strike me as a good blend for the intended style... but that was before I listened to the song. Now i think this is nothing short of an absolute masterpiece!

EDIT: I'm only now spotting your geographical location...I was more on it that I even realised! grin
