Jean-Baptiste "Django" Reinhardt (1910-53) was born in Liberchies, Belgium on January 23, 1910. In 1934 he formed the famous quintet the Hot Club of France with violinist Stephane Grappelli. Dryfoos recommends: Django with his American Friends, especially the 4 cuts he made with Benny Carter and Coleman Hawkins in the mid-30's. Carter provided the arrangements and some nice work on alto and trumpet; Hawkins has a great solo in each of the tunes. Although Django doesn't solo much on these tracks, his distinctive sound and sense of swing absolutely propel the session.
