Petits Mensonges

I just played a wonderful gypsy jazz gig at a toasty Irish bar.  By a stroke of luck, a group of swing dancers came in from the cold and proceeded to drink and dance all night.

“Little White Lies” is just one of many popular tunes played by Django Reinhardt (on his albums it goes by “Petits Mensonges”).  It also appears on the Kurt Rosenwinkel album East Coast Love Affair, and this lead sheet owes a lot to that version.  Along with Avishai Cohen and Jorge Rossy, Kurt turns it into a jazzy calypso.
