Editorial Reviews

Review

This is more than just Django's history - it is the fable of gypsy jazz and the unique players in it. There are extraordinary photographs, posters, and album covers all contained here. --Curled Up With A Good Book, February 2009

This is a marvel of a book to look at, capturing not just Reinhardt and his fellow musicians... but a forgotten Europe...A book to be treasured, even by music lovers who aren't Django Reinhardt aficionados. --Songlines Book Review in January/February 2010 Issue

Format: Paperback
Gorgeously illustrated with black-and-white and color photographs and poster representations on almost every page, Django Reinhardt and the Illustrated History of Gypsy Jazz is the true story of a legendary figure in Gypsy Jazz, a music style that arose in the Jazz Age of the 1920's by blending the Romany violin and flamenco guitar with the trumpet and other jazz instruments. Django Reinhardt and the Illustrated History of Gypsy Jazz traces the style's evolution and the career of the man who embodied it through the horrors of World War II, when the Nazis severely persecuted the Gypsies in Europe, and onward to Gypsy Jazz's rhythm-and-blues legacy for the modern day. The lively text entertains as thoroughly as it enlightens, in this enthusiastically recommended volume for casual readers and music history buffs.

This is very well done, and has some interesting stuff that I haven't seen in other books about Django. I especially like all the pictures and additional work that went into it to make it more visually appealing and interesting to read!!

Finally, I'm looking for literature about the jazz in Europe: Django Reinhardt and his quintet Hot Club de France, who had been always popular music to me! This book exposed all the things I never know. A must have to every jazz buff! Don't miss it!

Bought as a present for a Django and Jazz enthusiast. He thought it was one of the neatest books he's seen on Django. Had pictures he'd never seen before.
