Midnight in Moscow

I heard a gypsy jazz album a while back featuring female singer singing French version of Midnight In Moscow. Anyone know the group and album ?

    Unfortunately, I don’t know the version you are seeking, but I love this tune, too...

    Paul Cezanne: "I could paint for a thousand years without stopping and I would still feel as though I knew nothing."

    Edgar Degas: "Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.... To draw, you must close your eyes and sing."

    Georges Braque: "In art there is only one thing that counts: the bit that can’t be explained."

    I was digging through Spotify this morning but no luck. We play this one regularly, great tune, pretty melody and has a really nice unusual turnaround.

    Not sure if anything here is what you are looking for. Midnight in Moscow is the Kenny Ball & His Jazzmen title, but the original title is more closely translated to "Moscow Nights" in English. The French lyrics go under the name "Le temps du muguet." Francis Lemarque is the original French artist, but there have been several women who have sang it.

    Here are a few, not sure which version you were looking for:

    Danielle Darrieux

    Mireille Mathieu

    @Bones I found a grille in the Django Fakebook 2008 and will be glad to send it if requested. You can find several versions in iReal Pro, as well.

    I know I already posted several versions, but I just watched this 2+minutes of pure bliss. Moreno playing the same song. Such effortless playing, and clear picking. I think my favorite part is around 2:23 where, in the middle of the head out, he casually turns to look at some approaching people as if he is just waiting for the bus. Never misses a beat.

    Samy Daussat looks youthful in this video.

    Not often these days that you see a guitarist almost upstaged by a couple of horses.
