I just realised that this is the first Song of the Week coming from Switzerland and it's a song, which title is requested a lot, when I'm spinning it for dancers.
Erich Nussbaum (born 11.12.1953) is a rhythm and lead guitarist. There is not much information available about him. He is a self-made man who arranges and produces his CDs himself.
Postcard To Fere is a self-composed song in the gypsy swing tradition inspired by Django Reinhardt & Stéphane Grappelli. It is a greeting to Fere Scheidegger, another Swiss guitarist and bandleader of Fere's Hot Strings.
Line-Up: Erich Nussbaum – guitar, Bernhard Suter – violin, Paul Buchmeier – bass.
I love this song and I play it all the time for Balboa dancers!
