Format: Audio CD
The popularity of these 2 artists continues and this latest set brings together vintage recordings and a sound that is instantly recognisable. Jean-Baptiste "Django" Reinhardt (January 23, 1910 - May 16, 1953) was a Belgian Sinto Gypsy jazz guitarist and remains one of the most renowned jazz guitarists due to his innovative and distinctive playing. With French jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli (January 26, 1908 - December 1, 1997) they formed the Quintette du Hot Club de France and it became the most famous of all-string jazz bands. Sound quality very good throughout and very atmospheric. The running times for these CDs are 76 and 67 minutes.

Picture the scene: the ferry from Dover was awful, you're in the car and your other half puts on these glorious, magical tracks. Slowly at first through Calais then onto the autoroute. The mood lightens, a mood of joie de vivre envelops the day and those long stretches of open road suddenly fly by to the giddy sound of the QHCF.

Here is a collection of classic tracks that will make those long car journeys disappear. Stephane Grapelli is on top form: Django provides superb playing too and the QHCF bounces along perfectly. This is music to treasure and share.

Equally as good for Eurostar or that quick hop over the channel to Le Touquet for lunch.

When it's Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grapelli and the Hot Club of Paris, how can you not buy it?

All the songs are 2m 50s, and there's a staple rum-chum-rum-chum rhythm throughout, but Grapelli's violin is so fluid and smiley. This stuff still influences French music today.

Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Great to buy a CD of this old 1920,s Hot Club of Paris. The sound reproduction is quite good but that is understandable given the age of the original music. Very good value. Brings back many memories

Django and Stephane are two of my favourite exponents of this kind of jazz and I've been wanting a replacement CD for a very old tape for some time.

Finally got around to ordering this one. It's exactly as you'd expect with some great tracks that just make you want to get up and dance around the room. Ok, there's some fuzziness and hissing, but no more than you'd expect from a remix of such an old recording.

This CD is really exciting - resonant with the swinging pre-War era of Jazz and Swing. Stephane Grappelli is a genius on the violin and coupled with the Django Reinhardt Group the sound is magic.

A fabulous and most comprehensive album. A must for all Jazz lovers.

A great co-operation of two individual and world class artists.
