Djangologie 9 Review

by Scott Yanow

The ninth volume in this twenty-LP series finds Django Reinhardt, after performing some duets with violinst Stephane Grappelli and a few unaccompanied solos, moving into the war years (which Grappelli spent in England). Reinhardt is heard taking guitar solos in groups led by trumpeter Arthur Briggs, tenor-saxophonist Alix Combelle, trumpeter Philippe Brun and altoist Andre Ekyan. These lesser-known performances should delight swing fans since they contain more than their share of hot moments.
