    What years were those Ferret recordings done? (Not that some years aren't worth hearing and others are ;) )

    The Sarane stuff is from 1967 and the Matelo is from 1973 (Samois)

    The Sarane stuff solid, late period Sarane, light and very easy listening. The Matelo stuff is IMO the best Matelo available on CD (next to Manouche Partie). He plays swing tunes, has a nice, bouncy feel without Privat honking away on this box. Definitley a worthy purchase, and something that I'm pleasantly surprised to see available!

    Hi,
    I'm quite surprised as well to see thi re-edition!
    The Matelo stuff is from 16 of april 1967 too, recorded live from the ORTF studios (french radio). Except for two last tracks picked up in the Samois Festival 1973: "Hungaria" and "Valse manouche inédite" (which actually is "Choti"). Incredible music!

    Pardon a simple question, but I've done searched the forums and not turned up an answer:

    When did the Samois festival begin? Was it initially sporadic, or has it been annual since it began?

    Cheers,

    I believe the first festival was 68, then 73, then 78, then annually starting in 83

    I just looked on the Samois website and they list 1973 as the first year. So maybe 68 was "unofficial"?

    The distinction is when it became an annual event which occurred in '78 I believe, before that it was a formalized, series of concerts. I've heard radio broadcasts of those earlier mini festivals and they are pretty cool - Vivian Villerstein's group with Maurice Ferret, Philippe Nedjar's group, along with Grappelli's band featuring Nedjar, Babik & Joseph and other stuff as well.

    The Django-Necropheliacs who complain that the festival doesn't contain enough Gypsy Jazz would be surprised to know that it is today as it was back in '68 and '73, with an even emphasis on the Manouche Jazz traditions and modern.

    Best,

    Ted
