Editorial Reviews

Django Reinhardt, the Roma genius, born to Gypsy parents in 1910, is considered by many to be the single most important guitarist in the entire history of jazz. To honor the 100th anniversary of Django's birth, one hundred of his disciples, including his grandson David Reinhardt, have gathered together for the Django 100 Centennial Tour -- traveling the world to pay homage to this exceptional type-setter who marked the 20th century.

Anyone who might have been put off by "Beth"s review missed out, big time. This isn't a primer of Django Reinhart's music that you can put on while you are trying to impress your friends at a dinner party. If you want that, buy a "greatest-hits" CD.

This is a beautifully crafted and touching tribute to this artist by the musicians who were so captivated by his playing that they immediately began to play in his style. Just the sight of the Django 100, in studio, was enough to put a lump in my throat. The brotherhood of these musicians is so strong and touching.

I recommend this to Django fans, to guitarists, percussionists, Francophiles, and just to lovers of the passion that music can inspire in people.

This is an excellent video for both jazz fans and novices. Followers, family and musicologists discuss the great legacy of Django Reinhardt as they begin to gather for the 100 Django commemorative event. There is only one drawback to this film: there appears to be no soundtrack available! Curses!
Anyway, enjoy this incredibly sweet and joyous celebration of Django's music.

A great video of the 100th anniversary of the passing of the world's greatest guitarist, Django Reinhardt. 100 guitarists gather to pay honor to Django including his grandson David as well as other stellar guitarists in this genre that include Tchavolo Schmitt, Romane, Angelo Debarre and Boulou Ferrer. It is a French movie with subtitles but don't let that put you off. The music was invented in France. You will hear some history as well as some great performances surrounded by the picturesque ambience of Samois sur Seine. Musique directement à partir du caeur. Vive Django Reinhardt.

Great documentary! If you are a fan of Django Reinhardt, or Gypsy Jazz in general this is the film for you. just try not to get to depressed about your own talent after watching it; there are a lot of very talents guitarists on this video.
