REEL DU JUBILÉ [1]. AKA and see "Gigue du cyclone," "L’homme à deux femmes," "Reel du cyclone," "Reel en la d’Isidore Soucy (Un)." French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). A Major/Mixolydian. AEae tuning (fiddle). ABB. The tune is 'crooked', or irregular, with ten measures in the first strain and nine measures in the second; the second strain also has a few measures in 3/2 time. Soucy researcher Jean Duval remarks that the piece was named for the Diamond Jubilee of the Canadian Confederation, sixty years old in July, 1927[1]. Soucy himself later recorded another version of the tune as "Gigue du cyclone" in 1954, notes Duval, who also finds the first strain of Soucy's "Set américain 3ème partie (Soucy)" cognate with the second strain of "Reel du jubilé"[2]. Liette Remon and Guy Bouchard give a version of the tune in their Airs Tordus/25 Crooked Tunes, vol. 2 (1997) as "Reel en la d’Isidore Soucy (Un)." See also fiddler André Alain's "L’homme à deux femmes."
