I wanted to call on the collective knowledge of the Djangobooks form - to figure out which players on which tracks. Below are my guesses, but if anyone has some back-alley knowledge or other sources it would be really appreciated!

To my ears it always sounds like it's Jimmy Rosenberg with either Angelo Debarre or Bireli Lagrene, but never all 3 except on Troublant Bolero & Sheik of Araby (and Embraceable You & All of Me on the outtakes). Is this true? Luckily it seems players are just panned Left and Right which makes it a bit easier, but still.

  1. Them There Eyes - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  2. Coquette - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  3. I'm in the Mood for Love - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  4. It Don't Mean a Thing - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  5. Nature Boy - Jimmy (L), Bireli (R)
  6. I can't Give you Anything but Love - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  7. Blues for Ike - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  8. Embraceable You - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  9. Donna Lee - Jimmy (L), Bireli (R)
  10. Valse De Wasso - Angelo??? (L), Jimmy (R)
  11. Troublant Bolero - Angelo (L), Jimmy (M), Bireli (R)
  12. Limehouse Blues - Angelo??? (L), Jimmy (R)
  13. Mystery Pacific - Angelo??? (L), Jimmy (R)
  14. Love's Melody - Jimmy (L), Bireli (R)
  15. Groovin' High - Jimmy (L), Bireli (R)
  16. Micro - Angelo??? (L), Jimmy (R)
  17. September Song - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  18. The Sheik of Araby - Angelo (L), Jimmy (M), Bireli (R)

and the outtakes (The Alternative One and Only Album)

  1. Blue Bossa - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  2. Groovin' High - Jimmy (L), Bireli (R)
  3. Blues for Ike - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  4. Coquette - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  5. Embraceable You - Angelo (L), Jimmy (M), Bireli (R)
  6. Troublant Bolero - Angelo (L), Jimmy (M), Bireli (R)
  7. Donna Lee - Jimmy (L), Bireli (R)
  8. I Can't Give You Anthing but Love - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  9. Wasso's Waltz - Angelo??? (L), Jimmy (R)
  10. Limehouse Blues - Angelo??? (L), Jimmy (R)
  11. September Song - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  12. It don't Mean a Thing - Angelo (L), Jimmy (R)
  13. All of Me - Angelo (L), Jimmy (M), Bireli (R)

    "You are a gentleman and a scholar.

    Go into my stable, and take my finest stallion. He's yours. His name is windjammer."

    Also nice to see my ears were pretty spot on.

    I think you re on the right track. On tracks where jimmy is the only soloist, it s also possible that he s the rhythm player. He likes to make his own rhythm tracks and has done that for many of his albums even though other rhythm players may be credited. There s another famous band like that where the rhythm players dont know any of the songs and are unable to learn them quickly enough so producers hire session musicians haha but are not credited

    @dennis ah good point. Never heard of Mystery Pacific before this CD, and it's only credited to Jimmy & Svein - so likely Jimmy just recorded the rhythm. That guitar tone upon closer listen is definitely not Angelo's touch.

    Also, there is a similar album called Portrait Of Jimmy Rosenberg. Some of the same songs, but not exactly the same.
