Impair & Valse

Romane - Impair & Valse

“At last, a record with nothing but gypsy waltzes! These bravura pieces, full of ba lance and finesse, are pure products of the musette tradition that reigned in the popular dancehalls of Paris before the war: the foundations of the “gypsy-jazz school”. Django Reinhardt himself was one of many instrumentalists whose first skirmishes rang to the sounds of this repertoire, played on banjo or guitar. With these essential gypsywaltz pieces, a work of reference first released in 1999, Romane gives us the chance to hear some of the diamonds in the crown of the six string guitar. Benjamin GOLDENSTEIN & Patrick FREMEAUX”Driven by the same master-class approach he’s used in teaching hundreds of musicians, Romane has made the scores of these waltzes an integral part of his record (they can be accessed using a computer disc-drive); instrumental versions of the rhythm parts, taken separately, are also available, allowing guitarists to use this music-legacy as a manual, taking its teachings into everyday practise as a continued, living art-form.”
