Swing This

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
The music of Django Reinhardt and St├ęphane Grappelli has long been a favorite of swing fans. Their approach is adapted by the Hot Club of San Francisco in arrangements of modern jazz compositions, pop tunes, classical music, and their own originals.
