Charles Delaunay(1)

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.
