AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This 20-LP series by EMI features guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli on recordings not duplicated by the various GNP/Crescendo reissues. In fact, the first 11 selections on the first volume (which has sideman appearances with pianist Garnet Clark, tenor-saxophonist Coleman Hawkins, violinist Michel Warlop and three early recordings including one song that features Django on banjo in 1928), are not on the massive EMI ten-CD set Djangology.
