All of Django’s recordings of songs by the great American composers Cole Porter and Jerome Kern.
Compiled from various sessions in Django’s discography, these selections feature a wide variety of accompaniment and arrangements. The common thread between them all, however, is Django’s incomparable improvisational genius.
As a bonus, all of his recordings of Irving Berlin tunes have also been added.
