    Personnel includes: Django Reinhardt (guitar); Freddy Taylor (vocals); Benny Carter (alto saxophone, trumpet); Frank "Big Boy" Goudie (tenor saxophone, trumpet, clarinet); Coleman Hawkins (tenor saxophone); Bill Coleman, Arthur Briggs (trumpet); Dicky Wells (trombone); Rex Stewart, Barney Bigard (clarinet); Larry Adler (harmonica); Stephane Grappelli (violin, piano); Eddie South (violin); Garnet Clark (piano). All tracks originally produced by Hugues Panassie and Charles Delaunay. Digitally remastered by Alan Silverman at ARF Productions, New York, New York utililizing Weiss 32-bit floating point digital filtering and dynamic processing. The brilliant gypsy swing guitarist Django Reinhardt is most famous for his work with the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, an all-string group also including violinist Stephane Grappelli, two rhythm guitarists, and a bassist. However, through the years he also had opportunities to record with American stars. In some cases, they were added to a Quintet date, and in others, he was part of an all-star group. This three-CD set, released in 1998, has 57 performances; all but the final four numbers are from 1935-1940, with quite a few cut in 1937. The value of this wonderful set to collectors depends on how much Django Reinhardt they already have in their collections, as every performance has been reissued in the past. For those listeners who do not own many of these sessions, the selections are essential, since Reinhardt and his guests are consistently inspired by each other's presence. Among the American stars who are featured along with Reinhardt (and frequently Grappelli) are Coleman Hawkins, Frank "Big Boy" Goudie, Bill Coleman, Freddy Taylor, Benny Carter, Dicky Wells, Eddie South, Larry Adler, Rex Stewart, Barney Bigard, and Arthur Briggs. The selections are fortunately in chronological order, and each of the 17 recording sessions is reissued in complete form. An extremely well done reissue. ~ Scott Yanow
