      To judge from the listings in the current Jazz Dixie/Swing quite a hotbed.

      The Hot Club de Lyon, 26 rue Lanterne, 69001 Lyon, is said to present a gig
      every night from Tuesday to Saturday . There¹s a list of venues with jazz
      from time to time. The only one with a website is Le fox-trot at
      <www.lefoxtrot.fr>, and the only gig listed that far head is Hahmet Gulbay
      (no idea, sounds manouche) on 9 April at Jazz et Gastronomie at Chaponnay,
      which is outer suburban.

      Get in touch again nearer the time.

        Hello John,

        Michael and Howard are right : the best place is the Hot Club de Lyon. You will find their schedule for january and february there : http://www.hotclubdelyon.org/
        Obviously their site should be updated soon, at least for the march schedule...

        All the best for your european stay, from Sid, Christer and myself,
        Louis

        Hey all. Headed across the pond for the first time. Will be in Lyon, France in early April. Anyone playing our kind of music there?

        Hello Serapion

        Wisdom there. Yes, Natty/Mitchell are much freer, less disciplined. But
        glorious.

        The idea that Oliver imported Louis to save his chops definitely runs, it
        certainly did in later years with increasing technical problems.

        But on the records Oliver seldom takes down, there are very few actual
        solos, certainly from Louis.

        Of course, it could always be that 'live' it was otherwise but reports of
        the band stress the magical interplay between Oliver and Armstrong.

        I don't really believe that Oliver wanted to keep Louis down. But Oliver
        does comes over as rather enigmatic, both generous and tight like that, both
        jolly and dour.

        I like to think that the glory of the double cornet front line attests to
        the musical creativity and originality of Oliver.

        I forgot to mention that the very first Euro revival band, that of George
        Webb in 1943, also used two cornets.

        Dave
