This valuable LP (the halfway mark of EMI's twenty-LP series of Django Reinhardt recordings) finds the guitarist forming a new group. After a selection with altoist Andre Ekyan and five numbers heading a medium-sized band (under the title of "Django's Music"), Reinhardt is heard with his new Quintet of the Hot Club of France, a band now comprised of clarinetist Hubert Rostaing, two guitars, bass and drums. This set also has a few selections from groups led by tenors Alix Combelle and Noel Chiboust. Valuable and formerly rare European swing performances.
