Default Django

So does anyone else here like the gypsy jazz legend Django Reinhart? I read an interesting colum on him in the new New Yorker and I almost forgot how good he was. Well anyone else a fan?

Django is amazing!!!!!!! BTW Django had all five fingers on his left hand, although three of them were "paralyzed". He still used his paralyzed fingers with very limited capacity when he played.

Thank you, the respect is definitely mutual.
Django reinhardt was a jazz guitarists in the 1930s his genre is more specifically known as Gypsy Swing, hard to describe, but the first thing that will dawn on you if you check out some of his more popular stuff is that you've definitely heard him before. The amazing thing about him is that he's one of the fastest jazz guitarist that has ever lived and he was capaple of doing more with two workable fingers than 90% of all guitarists that have ever lived could do with all five. He certainly comes highly recommended from me.

It's always interesting when people begin talking about the "greatest guitarists ever" and they mention Steve Vai, Satriani, Eddie Van Halen, et al, but they seem to always leave out the jazz guitarists. Guys like Django, Charlie Christian, Barney Kessel, etc. had incredible technical facility and were great musicians. I'm not knocking rock, but my students are always surprised when they find out that many of the great rock guitarists have studied the jazz guys.

I would say that django reinhardt is one of the greatest guitarists ever. some of my favorites of his are Jeepers Creepers, Djangology, and Billet Doux. its Billet Doux, not Deux Billet
