Django Reinhardt looms largest in European jazz. He looms so large it is sometimes easy to forget that the three-guitar lineup of his Hot Club and the support of jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli is very important to the Parisian swing sound.

The early jazz fan finds 50 shining examples of pre-World War II hot jazz included in this two-CD set.
