It's a mind-blower. Prick up your ears and give Django a listen. C'mon.....have a go.

Oh!Mr.Tommy

It is good music!! Exclamation

You know a lot of splendid music.
I am made to always admire you.
I examined it at once.
Japanese now was morning, but thought that it was the music that it wanted to listen to with liquor.

LOVE Django and Stephane! The movie Swing Kids (link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108265/) introduced me to their stuff. There's a Sydney band called Arabesk that plays a few of their songs, their violinist Veren is absolutely a joy to watch and listen to:

Definitely check out Django on YouTube:

I've been a Django's fan since the 80's, wonderful music. Google Rosenberg trio for more...

I hope you're hinting at a possible new direction for a future album.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: "For Lisa" was one of the highlights
of the Christmas tour..................

I think DJANGO was the best guitar player EVER....
he was a virtuoso, with a great sense of the melody and a fantastic composer too....
what do you need???....a couple of fingers????
i play in a rockabilly band (the adels) but also in a manouche trio called "Diego Geraci Golden Era Combo" where i play a lot of django's stuff and a lot of italian songs played ala django....take a listen to somethin' in my space at www.myspace.com/rockindiego75

There are a few "new" releases this year, a couple from EMI.
I picked up a collection several years ago; but I must admit it was over my head at the time. I have to revisit it- no doubt the man was an amazing talent.
Wasn't the Boulevard of Broken Dreams video a nod to Django?

Without question, more Django-esque jazz would be welcome from this fan! With or without his frequent collaborator Stephane Grappelli, Django's music is terrific. As a violinist with a more traditional background in "classical" music, I longed for any jazz I could find featuring the violin.

Stephane Grappelli and Djano Reinhardt's music captivated me, as well as their influences in the US, Philadelphia sons Joe Venuti (violin) and Eddie Lang (guitar). You don't hear nearly enough about guitarist Eddie Lang, as he died in 1933 at the age of 31. But their recordings from 1927-1933 are said to be a big influence on Django and Stephane Grappelli's early career.

Wow, Rick, you are always such an incredible wealth of information. And a violinist to boot! Your music collection must take up an entire room! Very Happy

Excellent musical selection!

I've been a fan of Django Reinhardt's for many years, back to when I started learning jazz guitar. I've always considered him to be one of the greatest jazz guitarists ever; in my opinion, one of the top 4 along with Wes Montgomery, Les Paul, and Joe Pass. I have a few of his albums (compilations) and I believe I saw within the last few years some box sets of both Django and classic jazz guitar that have become available. The albums I have feature selections with Django and Stephane Grappelli (duets) as well as tracks with the Hot Club of France (w and w/o Grappelli) and some selections with diff. rhythm sections. All of the tunes are fantastic, but I especially like his version of Night and Day which was recorded in Paris in March of 1953, only a couple of months before he died. It's one of the few songs that features Django playing an electric guitar (he sounds just as good amplified as he does on an acoustic).

I'm glad Rickabilly mentioned Eddie Lang and Joe Venuti, because they're fantastic as well. Eddie Lang, especially, almost single-handedly invented what would be the precursor to the chord-melody techniques of jazz guitar soloing. One can definitely forsee both of their influences on Django and Stephane on tracks like Ragging the Scale. Also, if you check out some of Eddie Lang's earlier work with Fats Waller you'll find an entirely different but great "Dixieland" take of Honeysuckle Rose; Fats Waller's tune, but one that Django and Stephane would later record as well.

As to the question about the "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" video, I've wondered about that myself. If anyone knows for sure, feel free to post an answer. Here is a post on the subject that I put up a few months back.

Boulevard of Broken Dreams Post

By the way, didn't Peter Frampton's latest release, instrumental 2006 album Fingerprints, feature some Django-inspired work?

Well that's enough talk...

For now.

Good Morning,

by influence of this Thread (thanks Tommy), yesterday i bought "The very best of Django Reinhardt, 48 Greatest Hits"

To be honest, i`m not an expert of this kind of music.

But this man was an awesome guitar-player. He had a handicap on his left hand, but played riffs we`re all dreaming of.

I needed 2-3 songs to come in, but after that... cheers

For the moment my favorites are "Georgia on my mind", "The still of the night"

Does anybody know who played the violin?

nice weekend

Brett

Shinya, you come to the states, you let me know it. Japanese thought applied to English is a
beautiful thing, my friend!
Rock on, brother! Flowering sound of the plentiful tone is much to be admired!
I honor you with my pitiful Gretsch-ability!
