Your choices?

Post by Captain Swing »

If you had to choose a track to represent Django on a jazz guitar compilation, which would you choose, and why?

It would have to be minor swing for me. Why? It's the easiest, most well known and therefore (hopefully) the most played and I would get more royalties! #cop-out :wink:

As it's a Jazz Guitar compilation i'd have to go for I'll see you in my dreams. Standard tune, nice progression and Django at his very best. Nice sound on the recording as well.

I would pick something that also shows off his compositional skill. So, maybe Douce Ambience. Good tune, swings & quintessentially Django.

I have the task of picking 8 recordings to represent the development of Gypsy Jazz from Django to present day. I've already pretty much decided but what would you choose?

That's out of my area.... I only really listen to Django.

I would suggest at the end of the chain, the most evolved, should be Le Doigts De L'Homme.

Two big problems:-
1. There are 10 rather than 8.
2. You have not included Django. :shock: He created the music! He must be included and possibly more than once.

Yes I did say I was ignoring the maths - hence 10.

I should have said I haven't included Django because I defer to your superior knowledge of the great man (but if pushed Minor Swing 1937, Nuits De Saint-Germain-Des-Prés - The Complete Django Reinhardt (1950-1952) vol.19) .

I was more interested in provoking a debate about the seminal developments post Django.

Any opinions on the track I listed ?

:? Sorry but it has to be eight and it has to include Django otherwise you are not eligible for the prize draw. :roll:

It is for a possible radio program so there can be no flexibilty in terms of numbers. The fact that it is only eight makes it incredibly difficult.

You've got four of my people but none of my tracks.
