Acoustic Quartet. Integrale Romane Vol. 7

Romane - Acoustic Quartet. Integrale Romane Vol. 7

Romane is a leading figure among those who, at the dawn of the 2000s, put their seal on the gypsy jazz renaissance. The evolution of this music owes much to his discography, and his compositions have become classics in the genre. On Acoustic Quartet, Romane is royally assisted by the brothers Yayo and Fanto Reinhardt, who lay down the metronome-steady beat the French call “the pump”, and by Pascal Berne on double bass, whose sense of swing is second to none. On guitar, Romane has a free hand to apply his virtuoso touch and feeling for melody, proving once again that, under the benevolent eye of Django, six-string jazz still has a fine future. Augustin BONDOUX As the publisher of the complete recordings of Django Reinhardt _ the set is a work of reference with 40CDs and booklets totalling 760 pages _ FrEmeaux & AssociEs today counts as one of the premier independent producers of gypsy jazz. This genre, as erudite and technical as it is generous and approachable, demonstrates the cultural and musicological richness of the gypsy contribution to western culture. Romane is one of their most eminent representatives and his compositions have become genuine standards. FrEmeaux & AssociEs celebrates the work of this guitarist in a collection covering his entire career as a recording-artist, available to the public as a “Complete Works” set with Acoustic Quartet as its seventh volume. Patrick FREMEAUX “Album after album, Romane demonstrates the vitality of a music-style and frame of mind which some people thought could only exist in the past tense.” Romain GROSMAN – VIBRATIONS
