Legend would have it that Rock'N'Roll was born in Memphis in 1954 when a young truck-driver by the name Elvis Presley opted to sing "Black Blues" his way. A legend that drastically over-simplifies reality, however, for the roots of Rock'N'Roll are already to be found in the early recordings of Blues, Jazz and Country music of the mid-1920. This collection, created by Gérard Herzhaft, shows that the Rock 'n' Roll was not born with Bill Haley and Elvis Presley but before, the fusion of Rhythm and Blues, Western Swing, Country, Gospel - or the whole of popular music from the early twentieth century. This collection has become indispensable, because the history of interbreeding reveals the crystallization and the formation of gender identity as the history of amplified music…

The great Argentinian guitarist Oscar Alem n, (1909-1980) is not as well known as Django Reinhardt or Charlie Christian, but he was no less an individual stylist. This wonderful set from Fremeaux & Associes offers proof that even later in life, his powers as an improviser, technician, and bandleader were undiminished. These 19 cuts were taken from two sources: a live date in 1965 with his big band Y Los Cinco Caballeros, and a studio session. The live gig, which comprises the first 11 selections, may be titled in Spanish but is mostly made up of jazz standards radically rearranged and played in Alem n's inimitable, hard swinging, intensely rhythmic style. Check out opener "Guitarra Salvage" ("Crazy Rhythm" ) and the stellar strut of "Murmullo de Pajaros" ("Lullaby of Birdland" ) for starters.

'As Rock 'n' Roll's great modernizer when the Fifties turned into the Sixties, Chuck Berry was one of the most influential musicians in 20th century American pop. His compositions have been played by the greatest, from Count Basie to The Beatles, and are today so famous that people forget that Chuck's originals were the greatest… Here, compiled by Bruno Blum, are Berry's indispensable songs from 1954 to 1961.

There could be no Greek of Instanbul (Constantinople) for up to 100 years ago that would not remember with sweet nostalgia the feasts of Tatavla. Singing companies of people on horse drawn wagons would climb up to the neighborhood of feasts to listen, in the various taverns, to the renowned orchestras performing amanes, Istanbul songs and dances: the so-called ‘divine chants’ of the Byzantines, a living and long standing tradition of songs listened to with the accompaniment of wine.

A marvellous black American singer and accordionist, Clifton Chenier succeeded in forging a style all his own, Zydeco, and for a long time he was considered its sole representative. Born in the 30s, the music came from mixed Creole and Cajun cultures in French-speaking Louisiana; when Chenier took hold of the genre it was marginal and mocked by mainstream America, but in just a few years, with a series of hit albums, the man they called the “King of Zydeco” turned the music into an accomplished form of expression that everyone appreciated. This anthology from Jean Buzelin follows the history of this King’s coronation between 1954 and 1960.

This album was born from a meeting. One comes from jazz, the other from musette. One is the great reviver of Manouche jazz, heir to Django, the other, accordion world champion, heir to Jo Privat. Both are fine melodists and have written and composed hundreds of songs. This is the first time that Romane and Éric Bouvelle are on record. The result is 12 thundering tracks, in the pure tradition of the swing waltzes of Paris of the past: the strings rub, the accordion blows, the jazz and the java are there and tangle! They are accompanied by Mathieu Chatelain and Laurent Zeller and Laurent Delaveau (Les Pommes de ma douche). They manage to bring this sophisticated popular heritage to life by reinterpreting the great standards by offering new tunes!

The music Manu Dibango is known for its alchemy of Jazz, African and Jamaican music, Gospel and R&B. His unique style was the forerunner of what we now call world music. Dibango is perhaps best remembered for his 1972 afrobeat single Soul Makossa, often considered the first disco record. This new best-of collection from Frémeaux features twelve tracks released between 1978 and 1989, including the 1978 Kingston remix of Reggae Makossa. Guest artists include Michael and Randy Brecker, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare.
