Django Reinhardt was an authentic guitar genius: completely self-taught, he forged a style with breathtaking technique despite being deprived of the use of two fingers of his left hand after an accident. The result was a sort of fusion between jazz and gypsy music: its incredible drive, richness of inspiration and virtuoso performance continue to give nightmares to guitarists even now, some seventy years later. Gathered together on one vinyl are the titles that earned him his reputation, with Django playing in a trio, quintet or big band. The accompanying biography written by Alain Gerber is illustrated by Jean-Charles Baty.
