Great Gypsy Jazz
All of Pearl Django's recordings are worth owning. Any fan of gyspy jazz will be thrilled with the band. I, for one, have listened to Django Reinhardt recordings for over 30 years. Those records were mostly cut with one mic', the group assembled around the mic' at varying distances to control the mix!! Yes, it was mono, and recorded on a wax acetate master. For fans of gypsy jazz you just can't go wrong with this band. Perfomances are fabulous and faithfull to the idiom. This is what Django's Quintette would have sounded like in the 30's and 40's. Please excuse the accordian on some tracks.
