Boulou and Elios Ferre carry on the traditions of the great Ferret musical dynasty (later changed to Ferre). Their father was Matelo Ferret, who was one of Django’s rhythm guitarists.
This clip is an out-take from the immensely popular documentary The Django Legacy. The scene takes place in the old Favino workshop on rue de Clignancourt in Paris. Jaques Favino and his son Jean-Pierre look on.
Boulou uses a section of Django Reinhardt’s Improvisation #3 as an introduction for Minor Swing. A complete transcription of Improvisation #3 can be found in my book Unaccompanied Django.
