La Javanaise

This is another wonderful, easy to learn tune, that was recommended by Dallas Vietty from our accordion staff. It’s a waltz, with a simple, and sweet melody. Originally written by Serge Gainsbourg for Juliette Greco, it makes for an awesome vehicle for Jazz musicians as evidenced by guitarist Sébastien Giniaux, or accordionist Richard Galliano in the links below.
