AllMusic Review by

The eleventh of twenty volumes in EMI's Djangologie series mostly focuses on the guitarist's new Quintet of the Hot Club of France, a group that matched Django with clarinetist Hubert Rostaing to form a strikingly modern sound very different than the Benny Goodman Sextet (which had similar instrumentation). In addition, tenor-saxophonist Alix Combelle guests on a couple of songs and there are a few numbers by orchestras led by trumpeter Aime Barelli and tenor-saxophonist Noel Chiboust. This enjoyable music is also available in EMI's ten-CD box.
