Sweet Sue

Another typical Gypsy Swing Standard is called „Sweet Sue, Just You”. Django Reinhardt and Oscar Alemán played this tune back in the 30s.
If you want to hear a version without the Selmer Style Guitar sound, we would recommend the versions by Errol Garner and Miles Davis.
In 1999 Woody Allen took the song for his movie “Sweet and Lowdown” with Sean Penn (as Emmet Ray). Besides the rhythmguitar and theme, we prepared a solo with jazz manouche ornaments (trills, vibrato a.o.) and typical Django Style Licks.
