Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt was not only the first truly influential European jazz player, he was also one of the best jazz guitarists of all time. This release presents his last studio sessions, including the complete original LP THE IMMORTAL GUITAR (Reprise Records R-6075), which consisted of recordings from a series of 1947 small group dates (featuring violinist Stéphane Grappelli) at the Radio Diffusion Française studios in Paris, plus Django’s complete Blue Star dates and all of his 1951-53 Decca sides.
