Vintage Guitar Magazine Review:
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Patrick Leguidecoq, better known simply as Romane, is one of the latest generation of jazz manouche guitarists following in the vaunted footsteps of Django Reinhardt. Armed with his trusty Maurice Dupont Selmer-style guitar, Romane creates flowing lines that dazzle with their rapid-fire pace and their sensuous musicality. His arpeggios and runs mix Django's phrasing with a style that is all his own, marking Romane as one of the true innovators of today's gypsy jazz revival. He covers few Django tunes on his CDs, preferring to pen his own compositions. Ombre features the fine accordionist Francis Varis, adding a musette feel to the hot jazz sound. These are phenomenal collections of gypsy jazz and highly recommended: Jazz manouche doesn't get much better than this."
