Watch Django Reinhardt & Stéphane Grappelli Play Masterfully Together in Vivid Color (1938)

The unfortunate abbreviation of Reinhardt’s life means that he never built a substantial body of solo work, though he did play on many recorded dates that include performances alongside Coleman Hawkins and Benny Carter. It also mean...
