  • Credits

    Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli may share one of the most advanced cases of musical telepathy in the history of jazz, a genre known for the synergy of its musicians. Between Reinhardt's blistering solos and rhythmic comping and Grappelli's bird-like flights on violin, the two created some of the most exciting and enduring music of the hot-jazz period. This fine two-disc compilation collects many of those tracks, including classics like "Body and Soul," "Swing from Paris," and "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing"), adding up to almost 150 minutes of classic, timeless jazz. Despite the truckloads of compilations available, THE ESSENTIAL COLLECTION remains an excellent place to become acquainted with Reinhardt and Grappelli, and it should also satisfy long-time fans and collectors.
