    Who's the clarinet player? That is a nice solo, and it's kind of refreshing that they didn't feel the need (as so many modern players do) to rip through at breakneck speed. Django's 1937 recording is rather laid back as well.

    I agree with you on the clarinet here. The clarinetist is Rostaing and the alto sax is Ekyan. In that theme and solo he has a quite different approach compared to the records done with Django, he really swings more than when playing with Django.
  • Can anyone tell me what year that was recorded.

  • Now I would love to add an mp3 to this thread but :oops: I have no idea how.

    Farewell Blues, Benny Carter and his all stars featuring Django circa 1936 -37

    I have been on a Benny Carter kick lately, mostly his earier stuff. Somemore great licks to steal on that one.

    See if you can find the lick in one of the sax solos that is very much the same as a Django lick in Blues Clair

    In Delauney's book he comments about Benny being the only one who could kep up with Django at one of the hot late night jams they had

    After you click on Post Reply, look down below the box you type into. You'll see two tabs, Options and Upload Attachment. Select the latter, and you can upload your MP3 from there.
