BirΘli LagrΦne & Friends - Live Jazz └ Vienne (2004) <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bir%C3%A9li_Lagr%C3%A8ne The little boy on stage is barely big enough to hold the guitar in his lap, but he plays with startling skill. Just beginning to develop a technique, his innocence is brilliant. He smiles humbly at the audience at Montreux. Filmed 24 years ago, the scene from 'Bireli LagrΦne and Friends - Live Jazz α Vienne' contrasts beautifully with the 2002 concert, which comprises the first part of this film. Thirteen songs performed by 'The Gipsy Project', a group Lagrene formed less than five years ago with violinist Florin Niculescu, bassist Diego Imbert, and additional guitarists Hono Winterstein and Thomas Dutronc, recall bygone times when Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli entranced the Hot Club of France with songs like 'Coquette', 'Sweet Georgia Brown', 'Belleville', and 'Djangology'. The dialogue between LagrΦne and Niculescu fizzes with lyricism. They tease each other while trading lines and egging each other on. The violinist plays with such impassioned desperation that one gets the feeling that if forced to be without his instrument his will to live would expire. A dazzling array of special guests joins the Gipsy Project for the second half of the concert. Violinist Martin Weiss' glamorous tone resonates with luster in 'My One And Only Love'. Accordionist Richard Galliano sits in for 'Tears' and 'Waltz For Nicky'. And the other 16 tunes feature a variety of guitarists, including Silvain Luc, Angelo Debarre, and Stochelo Rosenberg. Fantastic bonus footage rounds out this nearly four hour DVD. Backstage jam sessions, exclusive interviews, and personal moments with LagrΦne titillate. Nothing can beat the allure of scenes in the studio where everyone's cracking each other up and smoking like crazy!
