DJANGO REINHARDT: .... "The Sheik of Araby" .... and .... "J'attendrai Swing" ....

This posting for the music sector of this journal will honour one who's spirit will remain with me through his great genius composition and contribution to Jazz. A master of string's and genius in my opinion ... Jean "Django" Reinhardt .

Mr.Reinhardt was born in Belgium in 1910 (1910-1953) and spent much of his childhood in Gypsy camp's outside Paris,France, co-founder of "Quintette du Hot Club de France" band ... most noted for his guitar work .... a master of guitar, banjo, and violin ... played with many great American Jazz name's such as Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, and Coleman Hawkins to name a few. For me .... his music was a "Serenade for the Soul". One of many that I am obligated to honour in this journal for his (their) contribution's and creativity. Thank You for all the great art Sir! ... Enjoy!
