Contains new specially prepared liner notes by PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ’s writer BRIAN MORTON and by Paris’ prestigious JAZZ MAGAZINE



“Django Reinhardt never sounds like anyone except Django Reinhardt. A whole wilderness of buskers have taken on ‘Nuages’ and other favourite themes, but none of them have ever sounded remotely like Django, any more than they could reproduce his poor, burnt fingertips. ‘Unique’ is a tired and redundant term of praise, but it applies here.” PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ

“Django’s virtuosity continues to astonish guitar masters and young musicians today. He passed away at the zenith of a short career, leaving behind a body of recordings that give indisputable proof of his authentic creative genius.” JAZZ MAGAZINE
