Tonight we saw a great band, the Sammy Daussat Trio, at l’Atelier Charonne in the 11th, playing in the tradition of Jazz Manouche, ie, a la Django Reinhardt. Here’s a little clip.
I’ve seen a fair few guys playing in the Django style over the years and this guy was easily the best, he must have played hundreds of chords, ravishing the fretboard, a cacophony of notes, spellbinding stuff.
Unfortunately the clip I got he holds the same chord for 16 bars or so, so check out Youtube for some more interesting examples.

The Limonaire is a small resto/cafe/music venue in the 12th that attracts a singer/songwriter type of crowd and has a great atmosphere. When we were there the theme was trucs de la Manche, here’s a little taste.

I’ve had a lot of problems with Mobile Me syncing my data over the last few months and finally took some time to sit down and fix it. When you spontaneously lose contacts and appointments it can get quite annoying.
If you’re unsure if you have sync problems here are a few telltale signs:
- you’re seeing the same appointments multiple times in the calendar
- multiple contacts
- when you select Groups in the Contacts app, you see multiple sources for the same groups
- when you select Calendars in iCal or the Calendar app, you also see multiple sources
The first thing you need to know which is not at all obvious is that if you are a Mobile Me subscriber, ie you pay your $60/year, you should NOT enable ’sync calendar’ and ’sync contacts’ in iTunes. The two processes are redundant. And if you have a Mac desktop, laptop, iPhone and/or iPad, the results can be disastrous, trust me In addition, you may sync single devices to multiple computers, I find it’s necessary, this creates even worse results. I have the case where my laptop is the master when it comes to photos, because that’s something you want to always have to hand, but my Mini is the master for music, because you can always sync to a device before you go out on the road.
So after you connect your devices (eg, iPhone and iPad) to the multiple computers you sync to and deselect the ’sync contacts’ and ’sync calendars’ options, then hit sync, you will be offered the option to remove the synced data – accept.
At this point your data will not be fixed yet. In my case the syncing problems caused problematic data sets on my iPhone and iPad. The trick here is a surprising one. In the Settings, app, select
> Mail, Contacts, Calendars >Your Mobile Me account
and turn your contacts off. This will remove the incorrectly synced data on your device, and allow you to set it up again properly.
In my case I was sure that the master copy of my data, ie contacts from Address Book and appointments from iCal, were correct on my laptop, my main machine. Just to be safe I took a backup before proceeding.
