Djangology

Incredible, ten discs for around $20!

That's right, the ten disc Djangology covering 1937 - 1943, cost  around $20. There have been other labels that offer complete series' and fairly complete ones such as JSP, Fremeaux and Associates, and the Melodie Jazz Classic

Djangology  

Django Reinhardt's material has been reissued in numerous manners. In 2005 a ten disc collection that covers most of his material from 1937 through 1943 is the best value by far. Within this period, it covers most of the sessions, and is chronologically sequenced. When songs were performed twice they only include one of the performances. 

Below, from the ten disc Djangology covering 1937 - 1943, we have listed first the tracks, then we broke them out by session, which includes personnel. 

Key supplements
For collectors this is a great way to build a foundation. Certainly, there is material not from 1937 - 1943 that is essential. The 1949 and 1950 Rome sessions have a ton of material that is top shelf. Too, the March 10, 1953, electric sessions is one of my favorites.

Django in Rome 1949-1950  

Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli's reunion in 1949 is excellent. There are a few ways to get the material. The four disc box set Django In Rome 1949 - 50 is the best value. There are also some compilations and the comprehensive series Fremeaux and Associates Series

Rather than using a rhythm section of bass and two acoustic guitars, Django and Stephane are backed by drums, bass, and piano. 

January-February 1949 RAI Studios, Rome
Django Reinhardt (g); Stéphane Grappelli (v); Gianni Safred (p); Marco Pecori (b); Aurelio de Carolis (dm)
