Overview

Jazz guitar and Gypsy swing archetype Django Reinhardt (1910-1953) left an enormous recorded legacy, so vast that many might wonder where to dive in. Before plowing through any of the various chronologically stacked reissue series, it might be wise to sample the man's music and see if you feel like delving deeper. Released in 2008, EMI's Platinum Collection (not to be confused with a Platinum Django album issued four years earlier by the Start label) offers 60 choice cuts beginning with a seven-minute version of "Nuages" recorded during the early '50s. Most of Reinhardt's best friends and fellow improvisers are here; the Quintet of the Hot Club of France; violinists Stéphane Grappelli, Michel Warlop, and Eddie South; bassist Louis Vola; trumpeter Philippe Brun; cornetist Rex Stewart; saxophonists Alix Combelle, Andre Ekyan, Benny Carter, and Coleman Hawkins; bandleader Ray Ventura, and pop vocalist Charles Trenet. EMI's Platinum Collection would be an excellent choice for an introduction to the music of Django Reinhardt.
