French Gypsy Jazz guitar legend Django Reinhardt made more music with two fingers than most mortals could with twenty. This timeless CD collection of classic compositions, entitled Django Reinhardt: Nuages (also available via download), features the Hot Club of France with Stéphane Grappelli and the great Benny Carter Orchestra, as well as two newly discovered performances with legendary saxophonist Coleman Hawkins, has been remastered to a stunning clarity that highlights the genius of this modern guitar innovator.
Born Jean-Baptiste Reinhardt, Django spent his early years traveling throughout Europe with his community of gypsies until his early teens, when they settled outside of Paris. Reinhardt severely burned his left hand in a fire, forcing him to relearn the guitar without the full use of his hand. What developed was a unique method of guitar playing that unquestionably influenced his individual sound and wowed musicians with the ability to play scales with only two working fingers.
Django Reinhardt is arguably Europe's most influential Jazz musician. With this remastered CD recording, Django Reinhardt: Nuages, the virtuosic sound and fabled legacy of Django Reinhardt are captured for future generations to cherish. Django Reinhardt’s unique personality and unparalleled inventiveness made him one of the most important musicians and instantaneously recognizable sounds in Jazz.
