L'ARGOT DES MUSICIENS (French Edition)

By Bouchaux, Alain; Juteau, Madeleine; & Roussin, Didier

Paris, France: Editions Climat, 1992. Text/BRAND NEW. Illustrated softcover/NF w/trace edge & surface wear & very faint creasing to upper back corners. An unscholarly and sometimes very funny glossary of French musical slang --- mainly drawn from popular music - with definitions and usages presented in alphabetical order. "Sauciflard," for instance, is a "[m]orceau, souvent de choix, mais tant joue et rejoue que nul n'a plus envie de l'executer ... -- Les mecs, on a un marriage, dimanche! -- Y va falloir encoRe s'taper les sauciflards!" Also given are slang titles for pop and jazz standards "Sa Pine Molle" is Ellington's Satin Doll, and "Ma Gueule Sale" is Dresser's My Gal Sal. Given the sardonic, sometimes raunchy nature of the collection, American cartoonist Robert Crumb's (1943 -) two dozen or so illustrations are quite appropriate. 215 pages, with Avant-Propos, Remerciements, and References.. Reprint, 1994. Soft Cover. Near Fine/None as Issued. Illus. by Robert Crumb (Illustrator). French Language Softcover.
