AllMusic Review by

Although many of the GNP/Crescendo releases of guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli with The Quintet of the Hot Club of France do not give the exact dates or sometimes even the personnel, the music is so valuable that all are well worth acquiring. This set of mostly standards (highlighted by "Dinah," "Tiger Rag," "I Saw Stars" and "Blue Drag" contains The Quintet's first three sessions, a dozen songs.
