What nationality is Sacha Distel?
Alexandre Sacha Distel was a French singer and guitarist who had hits with a cover version of the Academy Award-winning “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head”, “Scoubidou”, and “The Good Life”. He was made Chevalier of the Légion d’honneur in 1997. Sacha Distel, born Alexandre Distel, was the son of Russian White émigré Leonid Distel, born in 1894,Odessa and French-Jewish pianist Andrée Ventura. Sacha’s uncle, Ray Ventura, was a jazz promoter. In the 1930s Ventura promoted and participated in the development of swing in France. When his uncle settled in Paris with his orchestra, “Les Collégiens”, Distel gave up his piano for the guitar. In 1948, Ventura invited Distel to listen to Dizzy Gillespie perform with his orchestra, along with Bruno Coquatrix, Paul Misraki and André Hornez. Distel’s efforts led to the orchestra’s split, which gave birth to two rival bands: Guy Wormser’s New Orleans die-hards and the cool jazz and bebop aficionados led by Distel. After meeting Hubert Damisch, a saxophone player, Sacha founded the band that would allow him to be up with the leaders. With help from Jean Marie Ingrand, Mimi Perrin and Jean-Louis Viale, the band won the Coliseum’s Night of Jazz “Meilleur Petit Orchestre Moderne” award, with Damisch and Distel winning prizes as musicians on the same night. Distel became a professional jazz guitarist. Over his career he worked alongside Dizzy Gillespie and Tony Bennett and appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in the late 1950s after establishing himself as a French crooner.Read Full Biography Wikipedia
