* Musical Moments to Remember: Joséphine Baker, Vol. 2
The Story behind Joséphine Baker, Music Vol. 2:
In the fall of 1992, Dirk Heidemann visited with a good friend the famous “Chez Joséphine”: Where the Legend of Joséphine Baker Lives On … This restaurant was decorated in a 20/30 style full of Joséphine Baker posters, pictures from her career from 1925 to 1975. Jean-Claude Baker sat next to Dirk and was not stopping to tell private stories of Joséphine Baker.
It was a lovely evening, full of a lot of memories… Joséphine Baker called Jean-Claude the thirteenth of her adopted Baker’s dozen —The Famed Rainbow Tribe— and tapped him to arrange her international comeback tours and sing a song or two between acts.
Jean Claude Baker gave Dirk Heidemann on this evening “The CHA CHA CHA” of Joséphine Baker, Vol. 2, which was never recorded… exclusively for Dirk’s show dance “Esto Es Felicidad!….
Dirk used this “cha cha cha” of the famous legend Joséphine Baker, Vol. 2 for his show dance world champs as a homage of Joséphine Baker.
