1 - This session features a group lead by Loulou Boislaville (b. 1919), a famous bandleader, composer, and dancer, as well as the well-known clarinetist Hurard Coppet (1908-1971). The style and sound of these performances are best summarized as urban popular dance music. Many of the recordings in this session can be found on Caribbean Voyage: The French Antilles (Rounder 1733) and Caribbean Voyage: Martinique (Rounder 1730). [Source: Editor]
:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Polyphonic texture and improvisatory feel. A number of repeating chorus/refrain sections (sung by several singers) are featured midway through this performance and provide a background for instrumental extemporization. [Source: Editor]
