Jazz: Django, Pt. 1

01/21/10 9:00PM By George Thomas

Django Reinhardt, the first, and only, "King of Jazz" in Europe, was born January 23rd, 1910 to gypsy parents. Hearing the music of Louis Armstrong in 1931 he found his focus  & went on to redefined the role of the guitar in jazz. In Part 1 of a tribute, at the 100th Anniversary of his birth, we hear duets with his long-time partner Stephane Grappelli and his Quintet of the Hot Club of France. Tune in for Part 2 Friday January 22nd.
