Jazz in Paris: Swing 48 collects some of Django Reinhardt's best electric guitar performances from the late '40s, including "Pêche à la Mouche," "Minor Blues," "Night and Day," and "Swing 48." These lively numbers are balanced with quieter but no less inventive tracks such as "For Sentimental Reasons" and "I'm Confessin' (That I Love You)." Two takes on "Blues for Barclay" round out this compact collection, which may not be as thorough an exploration of this part of Reinhardt's career as Peche à la Mouche, but still offers a taste of his electric, bop-influenced years.
