Our new lesson is called “White Christmas”. The song is written by Irving Berlin and the version of Bing Crosby is the most famous recording of that title.
Crosby was a huge Django Reinhardt fan. He went to Paris to invite Django to an US Tour, but he was not able to find him, so because of that reason there was never a common performance of this two masters.
Our version of White Christmas starts with an slow intro, in the b-part we continue “in time”. After that we play the melody (with a lot of improvisation in between) accompanied by the typical jazz manouche rhythm guitar.
