2018 EU issue  on standard vinyl LP-A jazz legend, a recognised virtuoso of his instrument on a par with Armstrong who mastered the trumpet, Art Tatum the piano and Charlie Parker the saxophone. Django Reinhardt's recordings demonstrate how his art form has not aged. This art form firstly transpires through his unique and fluttering manner of making melodies sing, then through a series of devastating improvisations abundant in the most delightful treasures.

Stunning quality remastered by Francis Dreyfus. Using 24 bit remastering and achieving a restoration that is nearly unbelievable; Dreyfus has given us Django like we have never heard him before. From recordings done in the confines of the Quintet Of The Hot Club Of France in the late 30s to more obscure settings including Reinhardt in the mid 40s on electric guitar; this album provides listeners a superb opportunity to hear one of the greatest ever with a new set of ears.
