Django Reinhardt et le Quintette du Hot Club de France,
avec Stéphane Grappelli
Stéphane Grappelli (vln);
Django Reinhardt (g solo);
Pierre Baro Ferret, Marcel Bianchi (g);
Louis Vola (b)
1937 April 22 - Columbia, Paris

Grappelli states the melody with the effervescence and light hearted swing that are his trademarks.
Django starts his solo sluggishlyhere, and in the second eight bars either misses the chord or is trying for an unusual polytonal effect.
But in the second chorus he takes flight, and dishes out choice phrases that build on very large interval jumps.
Then come some wild and woolly guitar chords that sound -I kid you not - like asteam locomotive heading down the track.
The band is so far out of the stratosphere by this point that they don't even reprise the melody.
Forget the title some serious misbehavin' is goin' down here.

1937, dans la section rythmique de Django et Stephane, on entend Marcel Bianchi, premier jazzman marseillais .... Il est arrivé à Paris, recruté par Louis Vola il enregistre une vingtaine de titres avec le 5tet du hot club avant de voler de ses propres ailes et de devenir l' rival de Django tout en restant son ami....
