Jean Wiéner (1896-1982), a French pianist and Clément Doucet (1895-1950), his Belgian duo partner, were classical pianists and jazz pioneers, who rose to fame in Europe's cafes and music halls of the 20s. Jean Wiéner (also a classical composer and conductor) was the house pianist at the Gaya bar and later at Le Boeuf sur le Toit in Paris. He was succeeded by Clément Doucet. In those circumstances the two pianists met, became friends and recorded many duets between 1925 and 1937. This splendid recording was made in Paris in 1928.
