So sad and strange too, as that one musician I mentioned earlier- Django Reinhardt also died (of a sudden stroke) at the young age of 43.
You are right he is incredible.

Just want to chime in and say GREAT MUSIC! I was a dj for a long time in my younger days, but I always tried to mix in some of these goodies. You could say I played everything from B Holiday to NIN. lol I could get away with that because I owned the bar! My customers usually enjoyed it for the most part.

It's nice to hear music you can actually understand the lyrics and you don't feel like banging your head against the wall.

One guy I liked a lot of Pete Fountain. Amongst many others of course. Looking forward to hearing more of the other songs that have been shared today.

There really is great music in here- again thanks to all who added to the playlist.
I'm sure I would have loved drinking in your bar. Sounds like there was some great music going on in there.
Thanks for the comment!

Was going to post a bunch of Al and Ray, thanks for putting them up.

Add some Edith Piaff and we're all good.

Great thread, I often find myself looking back at the influences of my favourite artists....then at theirs and so on....i usualy find myself back in the 1920's.

I love the Carolina Chocolate Drops for their educational approach to old time music, makes me want to learn the Charleston!

Then I'm sure you have found yourself at some point with Blind Willie Johnson.



I love the Carolina Chocolate Drops too!

Better now, thanks.

Gonna throw some Django on the Bose this weekend while I cook, he always seems to make the food taste better.

I'd guess your cooking is what makes the food taste good


But really Django is one of the best to ever do it. He has made it in my all time faves since the day I made this thread! And I found out that he had burned the majority of his left hand (lost basically 3 fingers) at 18 when his caravan went up in flames and retaught himself to play.

Your plans sound great. Have fun!

It's fascinating but he practically created a new method to play his banjo once that happened and I think it really impacted how great and unique his music sounded.

She's another fav, I have 5 hours of Edith lined up for when we do the 7 course dinners.

Even though this one is a decade late for this thread... that final note!



(Edit: NOT a decade late! Missed the 40s by 2 years only.)
