ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pigalle44 has been founded by guitarists Reinier Voet and Jan Brouwer
Both are well known in the Dutch gypsy jazz scene. 

From the 1980’ies Reinier was leading his own band Cravat, played as a guest in many bands and worked as rhythm guitarists for the young gypsy jazz guitar sensation, with whom he also recorded some cd work for the Norwegian label Hot Club Records. He’s been rhythm guitarist for ther Master of the Django guitar Fapy Lafertin since 1999.

Jan has been playing since his 15th in various bands and started his professional carreer in 1997, as rhythm guitarist for Robin Nolan. With this group he toured quite a lot and recorded three cds. In 2001 Jan joined the Fapy Lafertin Quintet as second rhythm guitar, next to his trusted Pigalle44 friends Reinier Voet and bassist Simon Planting.
With this line up two cds were recorded: "Fine and Dandy" and "Fleur D'ennui".

The 5th cd of Pigalle44 andis entitled Mistral (named after the rather unknown Joseph Reinhardt composition Mistral) The cd (again) features an eclectic choice of songs from France's national treasury.

Compositions by guitarists and musicians who active in France and Paris in particular, during the 1940ies, 50ies and 60ies.
From Brigitte Bardot's 'Sidonie', via Django Reinhardt's 'Minor Swing' to Sarane Ferret's 'Soir Triste'. The latter has never been recorded before!


The music of Pigalle44 has a very personal and recognizable style. The mix of swing and bop elements delivered by the two main characters of Pigalle44: Reinier Voet on sologuitar and Jan Brouwer on rhythm, is simply magnificent.
The line up (two guitars, bass, tenor sax an accordion) is a clear statement. Minor Swing which is one of the 15 titles, is most definately a killer. Next to that, we hear Swing 67 (written by Babik Reinhardt), Soir Triste (Sarrane Ferret), Dinalie Mineure (Baro Ferret), St. Tropez Blues (Henri Crolla) and tunes by Joseph Reinhardt, Leo Ferre, Reinier's own tunes and Django Reinhardt's New York City. A lot of them in the wonderful arrangements of Reinier
Those things directly make you want to listen to the cd again! The songlist AND the playing. Hats off to Pigalle44!

A must!
