There are more great blues here than you can shake a tortoise shell pick at. Django knew the blues and he proves it thoroughly in this excellent collection. There are lots of collaborations on these discs....Django with Bill Coleman, Eddie South, Phillipe Brun, Rex Stewart, Barney Bigard, Duke Ellington, Benny Carter and, of course, Steph Grappelli....et cetera and so forth. There are four versions of "St. Louis Blues" but they are all played uniquely. There are multiple versions of several other cuts and they are all well worth hearing. My favorites right now are the Reinhardt bebop compositions "D.R. Blues" and "Blues for Ike" and the beautiful chamber pieces "Solid Old Man" and "Low Cotton", both written by and played with cornetist Rex Stewart and his Feetwarmers. Several of these sides are available on various other collections but this is a very nice compilation. The liner notes are everything a fan could hope for: interesting, informative and a bit worshipful. The complete personnel is listed for every tune. This set ranges from some of Django's earliest acoustic recordings to some of his last electrified recordings. Highly recommended for any Django fan or for lovers of great guitar jazz in general.

This cd is well manufactured and it was shipped promptly. Also, the price makes this a must for the listener who desires some of the past best of Django and Steve Grappelli !
