A relatively minor figure in jazz history, Hubert Rostaing will always be remembered as Stephane Grappelli's successor with Django Reinhardt's Quintet of the Hot Club of France. He worked early on in Algiers with the Red Hotters, moving to Paris in 1939. Rostaing played with Reinhardt on and off during 1940-48, appearing on many recordings including some in which Django was utilizing electric guitar and adjusting his style to bebop. Somehow the band worked fairly regularly during the World War II. occupation years. Rostaing also recorded many numbers as a leader during 1940-50 plus albums in 1958 and 1962, the latter a set that emphasized the twist! Hubert Rostaing spent most of his later years working outside of jazz, composing film scores and playing classical music. ~ Scott Yanow
