Review - Cultural Event Django Reinhardt

My wife Minche and I watched on TVMONDE5 (the French TV channel) "Concert des 100 Ans de Django Reinhardt" (100 years of Django Reinhard) which had about ten tribute acts play pieces from the great French Gypsy jazz guitarist of the 1930s thru 50s. The show was an impressive reminder of Django's greatness and that his music plays well over a range of contemporary music styles while providing a showcase for truly talented guitarists since the basis of Django's wonderful melodies is truly fast and virtuoso hand work.
