Broadway Record Store Paris, France

An absolutely stunning side from the Hot Club Quintette featuring Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelly( sic ) at their best. The hidden surprise here is the ” with vocal chorus “.  An uncredited Beryl Davis singing with a tone and phrasing that is hard to find in many older singers. The young lady was 15 years old when they cut this side. The first time I played it I was absolutely floored by her performance and when a voice from the other room asks emphatically ” Who Was That??!??!! ” you know you’ve got a keeper.

This copy is a French Decca pressing from 1939 with a store label.
