noticed this when tidying up a few things, and so i thought it was time for a bit more gypsy jazz guitar.  i snatched it when nocturnalnph seeded it in july 2012.  a nice clean fm recording from three greats of gypsy jazz / jazz manouche.

i’ve shown the location as “théâtre de boulogne-billancourt” as that sounds like what the announcer says at the end of track 1.  also, babik reinhardt & his son david performed there two days earlier on 14-may in david’s first public appearance, at age 6, at the django d’or “international jazz awards”.  i expect that this show was also part of the django d’or as well, but don’t find any trace of it.

the lineup isn’t clear, except that it features babik reinhardt (one of the sons of the great django reinhardt).  nocturnalnph thought that along with babik were his cousin boulou ferré and christian escoudé.  certainly, those three played together on other occasions and it’s a very possible lineup for that night… particularly with the django d’or taking place!

(note: i’ve not updated the info file.)
