I love digging thru older videos like these. Some of the clips in this one were new to me, worth a look.
Anyone know the name of this tune? Video should start at the right spot, if not it is 1:23:29
Also, where is the mic in that video, lol?
Yes I'm curious about the tune as well? Anyone know this one?
It sounds like a contra fact to Joseph Joseph
Yes it does. . .
Like this one too:

I think Ninine’s “1940” is a contrafact over the 32 bar A section of “Tchavolo Swing”, it’s even got the same descending 8 bar intro and bII7 chord starting the last 8 (all transposed to A minor). I should do a chord & lead sheet for it & surprise the guys in the new Glasgow jam session.
I do, I confess, perhaps prefer the “bebop on an archtop” school of Parisian gypsy jazz that the Garcias, Gresset, Moignard et. al. are currently playing.
It’s a song that the Sinti play in church, they sing it in different languages depending on where they live (France, Germany, Netherlands), a close translation of the title would be “come quickly” (“Awen Sik” in the Sinti language)
The basic translation of the lyrics:
God was put on the cross
He gave his life to take our sins away
Come quickly, come quickly to our Lord
Here's another Tchavolo Swing contrafact. @dennis do you know the origins of this progression?
This version has the classic intro chords and a similar progression too
For me the A section of Tchavolo Swing (as played in Latcho Drom) is a 4/4 version of La gitane's A section.
