The album marks the revival of the jazz and blues driven soundtrack approach so typical for the first Gare du Nord albums. The album features trumpet players Erik Truffaz and Jan van Duikeren and comes from Blue Note Records on audiophile vinyl through Music On Vinyl.
Dutch composers and musicians Ferdinand Lancée and Barend Fransen formed Gare du Nord in 2001, when they started writing lounge music in Belgium. Instead of going just for moody sounds and loungy atmospheres, the twosome composed a songcycle to express their contemporary interpretation of traditional delta blues. All songs presented here were conceived in the City of Light where urban life twinkles in a million shades of blue. That is probably why this happysad music reflects younger days in the big city. Gathered together for the very first time these songs sound and feel like birds of a feather. And maybe that is exactly what they are. Two of which are destined for a soundtrack-pitch for the new Quentin Tarantino movie entitled "Django Unchained". Besides a new track ("Tarantino's Tango"), Gare Du Nord recorded a new version of "Pablo's Blues", in which blues legend Robert Johnson excels.
