Product Description

Product Description

Today, nearly after fifty years after his death, Django Reinhardt's guitar artistry continues to amaze both fans and fellow muscians. This box give 103 reasons for this continuous adulation. Spanning 1934-1952, we include legendary sessions with the Quintette du Hot Club de France along with tracks from dates with Coleman Hawkins' All Star Jam Band, Bill Coleman and his orchestra, his involvement with The Glenn Miller All Stars and of course many with Stephane Grappelli with and without the Quintette. This 4 CD set shows what a giant he was and why he is such a huge influence on all guitarists playing whatever style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eighteen years of Django's best Nov. 6 2007
By Steve Emerine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This four-CD boxed set features 103 of guitarist Django Reinhardt's best tunes from 1934 to 1952, plus a photo-filled 44-page booklet. From his days with violinist Stephane Grappelli and the Quintette du Hot Club de France, Reinhardt went on to play with jazz legends like Coleman Hawkins, Benny Carter, Bill Coleman, Rex Stewart, Barney Bigard, Peanuts Hucko, Mel Powell and Ray McKinley. They all appear in this package, the 53rd in a series from Proper Records of England. More than 50 years after Reinhardt's death, many cities (including Tucson, where I live) still have their own "Hot Club" combos, carrying on the gypsy guitarist's legacy.

What could possibly be bad about 4 CD's of Django Reinhardt? Nothing I can think of.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great pressing, Great Music - Vinyl packaging material will damage records! Oct. 8 2012
By M. Causey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:LP Record
The selection and quality of the pressings is undeniable. The packaging is also unusual but pleasant looking.

There is a major drawback though which I find applicable only to the vinyl edition - the internal sleeve is made of a material which absolutely hugs (and grinds against) the record due to static charge. Simply inserting and removing the record from that internal sleeve will cause harsh scratches, and its use was VERY poorly thought out by the manufacturer. An easy work around is to use some nice plastic sleeves to protect the record, but that won't prevent the scratches cause upon insert at the packaging facility or protect the record from scratches the first time you remove it (which, in my experience, even that one-time action will cause scratches causing permanent light surface noise - it is definitely surface noise and not a product of the age of the recordings). If you don't mind butchering the packaging, you could probably cut the internal sleeve, peel it apart, and remove the record safely that way (but I still suspect there were scratches on the initial insertion).

So, the choice of sleeve material was absolutely horrible on the vinyl edition and I urge great caution if you purchase the vinyl - the packaging deserves one star. Otherwise, I have no complaints about the music or pressing whatsoever. In every other respect, it exceeds the highest standards and deserves 5 stars (making the packaging flaw all the more grating).
