    Recording information: Rome, Italy (01/1949-02/1949).
    A few years after their postwar reunion, Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and his most illustrious foil and confrere, violinist Stephane Grappelli, recorded perhaps as many as fifty tunes in the space of a couple of months in 1949 in Rome. The Italian rhythm section of piano, bass and drums was probably intended to "modernize" the frontmen's sound, replacing as it did their more Gallic all-string band of the 1930s, the Quintet of the Hot Club of France. But like the two-guitars-and-bass backing Reinhardt and Grappelli pioneered fifteen years earlier, this American-style rhythm section stays out of the way, and violin and guitar are the stars of the show.
    As with the Quintet, the repertoire is a mix of popular Tin Pan Alley tunes and Reinhardt or Reinhardt-Grappelli concoctions, including versions of "Minor Swing," "Swing 42" and "Djangology."
