AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Over a period of time, GNP/Crescendo released seven LPs featuring guitarist Django Reinhardt, violinist Stephane Grappelli and The Quintet of the Hot Club of France. This particular set has four titles from 1935 and the remainder from 1938-39. Of the latter, four songs actually find Reinhardt and Grappelli playing duets (Stephane is on piano on three of those cuts). Highpoints of this enjoyable LP include "Undecided," "Djangology," "Nocturne" and "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm."
