I post about the Charles Delaunay today.
As I wrote on Monday blog was a founding member of the FHC.
He evaluated the bop revolution in jazz unlike Hugues Panassie.
I think his achievements are next three.
First,he promoted ‘the Quintette du Hot Club de France’ with Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.
Second,in 1948 he founded the record label Disques Vogue.
This company recorded local musicians such as Django, and American performers such as Sidney Bechet.
Third,he was author of the famous ‘New Hot Discography’.
About this book I will post tomorrow.
Here is The Quintette du Hot Club de France play “The Sheik of Araby”.(1937)
