The Django Reinhardt legacy of speedy gypsy-oriented acoustic swing guitarists lives on in Europe. This sampler features music available on six previous albums. Featured are such brilliant guitarists as Jimmy Rosenberg, Robin Nolan, Jon Larsen, Per Frydenlund, Angelo Debarre, Bireli Lagrene, and John Jorgensen. Surprisingly, other than two standards and two songs from Django, all of the songs are originals. However, despite a few more "modern" moments, the music will certainly please swing guitar fans.
