Legendary Django Review

by Scott Yanow

This GNP/Crescendo LP (which lists neither dates nor personnel) is drawn from several session from 1947, a year when guitarist Django Reinhardt recorded quite a bit. He is heard with violinist Stephane Grappelli on four standards (including interesting remakes of "Tiger Rag" and "Dinah") and with quintets featuring either Hubert Rostaing or Gerald Leveque on clarinets. This is one of seven Reinhardt albums put out by GNP/Crescendo and all are recommended.
