Fapy Lafertin and Bamboula Ferret: C’est ci bon

Fapy Lafertin has a reputation as being one of the more sophisticated and expressive guitarists in the Gypsy jazz genre. He eschews the ultra fast tempos and flash of the younger generation. Instead, his music is light and melodic. These qualities are clearly evident in a series of rare recordings he did with his uncle Bamboula Ferret.

Bamboula spent his life in France playing popular songs and Gypsy music on the guitar and violin. He is also a charming vocalist. Although he was a highly respected musician, he never recorded. To preserve his musical legacy, Fapy used his home studio to make a series of recordings of him.

Fapy overdubbed all the guitars and bass himself. Take note of Fapy’s traditional approach to the la popme rhythm. It’s light and bouncy, unlike the more modern styles heard today. Bamboula is singing and playing violin.

For more Fapy Lafertin check out his CDs Fleur Dennui ,Fine and Dandy, and Swing Guitars.
