Recorded live in 1948 with a clarinet, this version of troublant Bolero is pretty nice and has a different character in my opinion from the subsequent versions.
As it was recorded with Hubert Rostaing, I made a transcription of both guitar and clarinet parts for my Django& the new quintett project.
The transcription is published on Soundslice and you can read more information about the tune, listen to it, play with a playalong on my website.
As a bonus: did you know Jacques LArue (lyricist of Nuages too) wrote some words for Troublant bolero? apparently nobody recorded it at that time but Christy Bennett found the lyrics and recorded it not long ago on her CD Lost Lyrics. I tried to transcribe the lyrics from her recording but there might be some mistakes.SoundsliceTroublant Bolero page on my website
