Description (2-CD set) Following the success of the first volume of Accordéon, musette et swing 1913-1941, here is a new compilation devoted to a musical genre that was the very symbol of a style of life, of an era, and of a world in which the adjective “popular” held no pejorative connotation. It includes sides for which space could not be found in Volume 1, plus others that have been unearthed since.The whole triggers a pleasant thrill of nostalgia, quite apart from the excitement of rediscovering a whole string of top-class artists : accordionists Gus Viseur, Tony Muréna and Medard Ferrero; gypsy guitarists Jean “Matelo” Ferret (the father of Boulou and Elios Ferret, now spelled Ferré), who turns in a wonderful solo on Douce Joie, and his brother Pierre “Baro” Ferret; and musicians of the calibre of trumpeter Philippe Brun and alto-saxophonist Maurice Blanc.All styles are represented, from the most musette (Indifférence), via the most gypsy (a fresh outing for Nuages), to the most swinging (Philippe Stomp, a piece much in the Charles Trénet vein). One can say no more, so let us just raise our hats to an issue produced with competence and passion (Didier Roussin’s notes reflect both) and give it the top mark.
