  • Gwen Cahue - Memories of Paris

    And Buco, to be accurate, Gwen Cahue does not live in Paris, but around Nantes (hence the name Memories of Paris).

    Gwen was living in Paris before moving, though, and you can hear the influence in the playing. When I was living there (around 2014) he was hosting a weekly boeuf at Trudain's Cafe in 75009

    As for the magic potion they're all drinking in Paris, I think it's Kronenbourg 1664?

  • Gwen Cahue - Memories of Paris

    Melkoni Project's FB page has a description of their trio, in French of course. Since I speak not a word of French, I skimmed through the text and came across the word "spleen," which, as a speaker of English, seemed out of place in a description of a musical partnership. Upon using Google Translate, that word 'spleen' was still there in the English. Curious, because I remembered the song "Tchavolo's Spleen," I googled "French expressions spleen" and found this:

    Spleen (nm) — Another 19th century, Baudelairian word. In French, spleen means melancholy, profound boredom and dissatisfaction. In fact, its synonymous with another French word that the English language has adopted: ennui.

    I WONDERED why there was a song about Tchavolo's internal organ - now I know. I learn something new every day...

    I like all these thoughts.

    Just playing the melody with occasional cool variations is real nice.
