Duo all so swing

The All So Swing duo: 40 years playing together this year! It's fair to say that these two mates have a real knack for it! Always happy to get together and play... Franck and Romain are solid!

The repertoire ranges from the music of Django Reinhardt (Nuages, Minor swing, Djangologie...) to songs that have toured the world (Que reste-t-il de nos amours, La belle vie, Stranger in the night, Unforgettable) arranged with care, to make them shine and swing so much more!...
Already two CDs produced (see reviews below) and a third in the pipeline...

- Hot Club de France Bulletin, April 2016
ALL SO SWING "Only Songs", Claude Alain Christophe
"... It's been a long time since I've enjoyed an album devoted to guitarists in the Django tradition (...).
I can't recommend this album highly enough, and if you listen carefully, you'll discover a most agreeable trio comprising two fine guitarists who, having drawn their inspiration from the same source, have each developed their own style. They have the talent to bring out the best in pretty melodies, while knowing what swing means."

- Trad Magazine, 2015
ALL SO SWING "Only Songs", Francis Couvreux
"... Standards (...) to which the trio breathes swing and freshness in an original rereading: impeccable arrangements by Romain and Franck.
(...) This is a feel-good record that I highly recommend.

-Jazz Dixie / Swing issue 96, 2017
ALL SO SWING "Sweet Songs", François Balzer
"... This trio plays a highly diversified repertoire that leaves plenty of room for the most delightful swing, especially in the fast pieces (...) a pretext for astonishing virtuosity on the part of our three friends (...)
(...) this collection deserves to be listened to with attention for the musical and technical qualities of these three instrumentalists, who demonstrate exemplary cohesion".
