French Roving Band History
There is a long history of jazz music in France. In the 1920’s, jazz began to become significant in France. At first, the French were concerned it was too American of an influence before “making it their own.” However, this concern soon turned to acceptance as by the 1930’s french jazz music had become acceptable. The Biguine, a style of jazz from the French Caribbean was popular among dance orchestras between the 1930s and 1950s.
The Le Caveau de la Huchette, in the late 1940s, would become an important place for French and American jazz musicians to work. Many American jazz artists have lived in France from Sidney Bechet to Archie Shepp. These Americans would have an influence on French jazz, but at the same time French jazz had its own inspirations as well. Bal-musette had some influence on France’s form of Gypsy jazz. In a related vein violin, and to an extent guitar, were traditionally more popular in French jazz than American. Related to that Jean-Luc Ponty and Stéphane Grappelli are among the most well-respected violinists in the history of jazz. That stated the violin is also popular in Eastern European jazz.
