This compilation focuses on the early years of Django Reinhardt, primarily focusing on his work as a sideman and not necessarily in jazz bands. The oldest recordings feature Reinhardt on banjo-guitar and do not give him much to do aside from providing rhythm, though one can hear him improvising on guitar in some of the otherwise forgettable features for long obscure singers. Of more interest to jazz fans will be the two previous unreleased tracks ("I Saw Stars" and "I'm Confessin'") that showcase the Quintet of the Hot Club of France backing singer Bert Marshall. There is also a previously unissued alternate take of "Baby Won't You Please Come Home" with the guitarist accompanying trumpeter Bill Coleman, which may have been rejected because of slips by alto saxophonist Christian Wagner and tenor saxophonist Frank "Big Boy" Goudie. The recording quality is fairly good for such vintage material. But this collection will be of more interest to thorough collectors of Django Reinhardt, due to the preponderance of forgettable tracks.
Nice one iTunes!
Well, I never cease to be amazed at what I find here in the store. I look forever for obscure modern progressive and post-rock bands and never find them, but when i go looking for some more Django to round out my collection, I hit the jackpot! This is a definite must-have for Reinhardt fans, as this album delivers the earliest chapter of the story of his rise to greatmess through rare, early recordings. I have been fortunate enough to have run across some really great comprehensive CD collections when I lived in Europe for incredibly cheap prices, but none of them had these rare recordings that I've not been able to find anywhere else. ITunes has one of the best online collections of rare older recordings by great artists and for that, at least, I'm grateful.
