Django: World's Greatest Jazz Guitarist
"When I think about the best guitar players ever, the first name that comes to mind is Django Reinhardt. No one has ever equaled his sound or techniques." - Willie Nelson
Born into extreme poverty in a gypsy encampment, Django Reinhardt (1910-1953) overcame tremendous obstacles, including a debilitating injury, to become the world's most acclaimed jazz guitarist.
Here, Bonnie Christensen tells his story with a haunting, rhythmic, jazz-inflected text and lush oil paintings that capture the spirit of both the man and his music.
Jazz Americain, [scanner's note this is cain not just can] jazz like Django--moving bending changing blending
Try that rhythm, stretch that measure, syncopation.
Twist that line.
