Groundbreaking young guitarist, Bireli Lagrene, pays musical tribute to the late gypsy legend, Django Reinhardt, with a blistering set of guitar duets. Teaming up with Django's son Babik, a noted guitarist in his own right, Lagrene navigates the difficult guitar-duo format with palpable energy, passion and enthusiasm. Django Reinhardt was jazz's original Guitarist Extraordinaire, leading Europe's first major league jazz band: The Hot Club Of France. Listen to the ecstatic applause at the opening of "Nuages" for proof that Django's distinctive melodies are still instantly recognizable half-a-century after the Hot Club first put them on disk.This Jazz Tribute to Django Reinhardt featuring his son, Babik Reinhardt, and Bireli Lagrene is complete with biogra-phies and bonus Django music. The program is a simultaneous testimony to the legacy of a guitar genius and a showcase of the unprecedented expressive range of the instrument in jazz today.
