Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Django Reinhardt has often been hailed as the father of gypsy jazz guitar and, indeed, listening to this new CD release from Blue Note, it is difficult to dispute such a claim!

Included are 54 of Django's finest recordings, including "Nuages", "Swing Guitars", "Minor Swing", and many more. The audio transfers are crisp, clean, and superb, certainly some of the best that I have ever heard! Most of the tracks here are of his classic work with the famed violinist Stephane Grappelli and the Quintette du Hot Club de France. However, there are also quite of a few of his fantastic collaborations with great American jazz musicians, like the saxophonist Coleman Hawkins and others. This collection, therefore, represents a good mix of performances from the guitarist's career.

The final track, "Echoes Of France", is the Manouche master's jazzed up collaboration with Grappelli of "La Marseillaise", recorded shortly after France's liberation and the subsequent reunion of the two musicians. It is perhaps his most emotional and heartfelt performance, flying right in the face of Nazi attempts to suppress jazz as "entartete musik" ("degenerate music") in Europe during the war. It thus serves as a fitting conclusion to this wonderful collection. Highly recommended!
