Swing Valse

June 16, 2008

Nicolai Foss

I am a great fan of the interwar and wartime swing musette tradition. In particular, I love the waltzes of Tony Murena and I am strongly intrigued by the quirky and brilliant “bebop waltzes” penned by Baro Ferret. Baro also wrote (with Gus Viseur) one of the classics of this repetoire, the beautiful “Swing Valse.” Here are the tabs.

Update: Here is Murena’s “Indifference.” The Bach of Swing Musette!

    i followed this link looking for the music to swing valse (wonderful tune) – is it supposed to be here somewhere?

    Yes — the tabs are still there, if that is what you mean by “the music”

    This is great! I love the 45 of Indiferance. Richard Galliano says its his favorite Waltz. Its really neat to hear that Viseur wrote Swing Valse with Baro Ferret. I’ve never heard of Ferret. But I’m really into the swing accordionists and the musette guys.
