& Reverie. Reverie is as close to a tone-poem for the Selmer guitar as Ive heard. Its like Fapy giving thanks for its wrote:

Haha... what a coincidence. I have been listening to He does a few songs on other instruments too - other traditional gypsy stringed instruments.
I love Fleur de Lavende as a tune and as a cd--i'm surprised more people don't cover the tune with its really nice modulation to Amin--gives a real lift to the impro.
Incidentally the 'Valse Argentine' Fapy plays is not traditional but is actually a brazilian valsa "Desvairada" composed by the brasilian guitar genius Garoto.
I believe its a portuguese guitarra that Fapy plays on the other tunes--not really a gypsy instrument per se but works very nicely in the context.
I was lucky enough to see Fapy many times in the early eighties--great gigs with blind monster jazz pianist Eddie Thompson and others with canadian pianist Oliver Jones--i just wish i could have filmed them!!
quite simply: you can't go wrong with any Fapy recording!
