Jalousie (Jealousy) 'Tango Tzigane' - Tune of whenever

Postby fjsys » Wed Dec 10, 2014 5:50 pm

From the thread "First and Most Recent Tune" ( viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2010 ) it would seem that a few of us are working on Jalousie Tango.
So I thought it may be good to put a separate thread together where we can encourage one another with it.

For me (because of the arrangement) this will take longer than a month to get up to where I can comfortably play it, so I am going to ignore the "Month" boundary and say this is the tune of "whenever" and will be posting my incremental results occasionally in this thread.

Anyone else is free to join in.

There is a simple lead sheet on page 42 of this book:

I am working from a arrangement by Roberto Carreno and I know there are others, so feel free to use whatever you find. That is a lot of the fun of this section to me is to hear other arrangements.

For the by earists in the group there are plenty of examples on youtube.
Simple version:

This one starts with the arrangement that I have and is still close for the first bit. Then he seems to improvise quite well with it. :)

Have fun with it.

There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know..

good idea :idea:

it seems difficult to find good examples and info on some tunes so will read this with interest

a friend of mine loves this tune and is helping me to learn it - the tune sounds different to ones ive listened to online though so think it is a variation or he cant remember it fully as it was many years ago when he played it

I learned this tune when I was 15 from a Charles Magnate sheet music publication for accordion and play it still today. This is much the same and accurate --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-tLknp9o8M -- although played by 2 accordions it will still come in handy for those of you learning by ear.

when you say simple this seems to be laid out in an unusual way with duplicate chords (some very unfamiliar to me)above dots and random A and B down side :| :?

maybe its because i am not a good dot reader and not an experienced player

Well there are a lot of jazz style chords in that sheet, but the main thing with the two chords is that the top is the chord that you would play and the bottom is the bass.
So the first:
G7
F

means play the G7th chord with the F bass.

For simplicity I would just play the G/G7th sequence.

The - (minus) means minor. So C-/Eb means play the Cminor chord with the Eb bass (or just play standard C/Cmin sequence)

For some of the other chords just play the minor or 7th and ignore the augmentation.
If you are feeling adventurous you can look at:

otherwise just use what you like.

The A B down the side is just indicating/clarifying the section, nothing to do with the music itself. In fact in their notation of the particular piece, as there is no indicated form or repeats, its seems superfluous - which maybe why the confusion?

If you look at the first piece 9 de Julio where it tells you (bottom) to play A,B,A,Trio (repeat it all (optionally)) and end on another repeat of A (from memory) the purpose becomes clear - saves paper & page turning... and maintains the black art for us dotters.. :)
