4.0 out of 5 stars Manoir de mes Reves, 24 Sep 2012

This review is from: Django Reinhardt on Vogue (1934 - 1951) (Audio CD)
A gypsy jazz classic, more Django that you can shake a stick at in many settings from small jazz group to big band, live and studio recordings. Recorded between 1934 and 1951, the music is always well played, and with plenty of variety over the 8 discs to keep interest well up.

The early recordings are dubs from disc plenty of atmosphere, but then studio recording at the time was mainly to disc, rather than to tape. We have live recordings with the air command band and many Quintette recordings from the final 5 years of his tragically short life.

For me possibly all I will ever need, but a great set and very good value.

This review is from: Django Reinhardt on Vogue (1934 - 1951) (Audio CD)
This covers a wide range of Django's bands / collaborations and comes with a booklet giving details of sessions, dates, personnel etc. (it Includes some radio broadcasts too).

It comes lovely retro styled box containing eight discs and at the price listed its just too cheap to ignore !!

A good companion to the 20 cd 'Djangologie' set .

4.0 out of 5 stars a few warnings, 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Django Reinhardt on Vogue (1934 - 1951) (Audio CD)
Whilst this is about the cheapest Django compilation on offer, it is not the very best. A large number of the recordings feature Django playing electric guitar in the post war years, and whilst it is interesting to hear his reworkings of his classic tunes, Nuages, Manoir De Mes Reves, Daphne, Djangology and so on, these are by no means the definitive versions. There are in fact precious few tracks from the Reinhardt/Grappelli classic years.
Another sour note is that the transfer quality, particularly when it comes from Sony, is not the best.
Overall though,an eight CD box set of Django at this price is still an almost essential acquisition, but for the completist, and not as a casual introduction to his music.
