When one thinks of guitarist Django Reinhardt's recordings of the 1930s, it is of The Quintet of the Hot Club of France, the group that consisted of Reinhardt, violinist Stephane Grappelli, two rhythm guitarists and string bass. However on this LP, the seventh volume out of twenty put out by EMI, Django is instead heard with recording groups led by violinist michel Warlop, trumpeter Philippe Brun and altoist Benny Carter. In addition, he duets with Grappelli nad takes "Tea for Two" as an unaccompanied solo. Classic music that has also been reissued in EMI's Djangologie ten-CD box set.
