Notes

First edition. History of the label founded by Charles Delaunay and Panassié in 1937 to provide for the needs of the burgeoning French jazz market, here with a superb inscription from Panassié to the half-title; "To Paul and Gloria, faithful friends and unfaithful correspondents! Know that I often regret not having heard these discs without having been involved recording them; I can only imagine the impression that they make on first hearing. Recorded at New Yorck Yes-Yes in English in the original, ha! ha! Hugues" (our translation).
