Mawer, Deborah (2008) ‘Parisomania’? Jack Hylton and the French Connection. Journal of the Royal Musical Association, 133 (2). pp. 270-317. ISSN 0269-0403Metadata only available from this repository.
Like many figures in popular music, the British dance bandleader and entrepreneur Jack Hylton (1892–1965) has been largely forgotten. Through concert tours of France and nostalgic recordings with Chevalier, Hylton forged a connection which peaked at the Paris Opéra. Despite his large French-related repertory, which included ‘jazz’ arrangements of Stravinsky's Mavra, Ravel's Boléro and chansons, his American-influenced style was ultimately international. If his obsession justified the quip of ‘Parisomania’, there was reason in his madness.
