Django Reinhardt ARE YOU IN THE MOOD Vinyl Record

Django Reinhardt ARE YOU IN THE MOOD Vinyl Record
The Hot Club of France was a kind of jazz appreciation society based in Paris in the 1930s and Django Reinhardt and his quintet (featuring Stephane Grappelli on violin) swiftly became it's main attraction. In an era when it was commonly believed that in order to play jazz you had to be African American and from somewhere like New Orleans, Reinhardt managed to single-handedly debunk this myth, and in the process become the first international European jazz star. Although Reinhardt played in the jazz idiom, he did not try to mimic his American counterparts, but developed his own distinct style of playing (on an instrument that was not even an accepted jazz solo instrument at the time and with two crippled fingers on his left hand)!His prewar recordings for HMV and Swing became wildly popular, selling to audiences eager to hear what this new European jazz was all about. These recordings (1936-1937) chronicle a time when Paris was the center of the world - and the legendary night clubs of Montmarte, Pigalle and along the Champs Elysees were filled with jazz - but with the onset of WWII, all this changed and gypsies like Django Reinhardt were systematically being rounded up and sent to the death camps. Vintage 78 rpm style 2-hole jacket for visible colorful label. The image shown is from the inner sleeve, the actual cover is a generic Monk cover.

Each record is protected within its record sleeve by a white vellum anti-dust sleeve.
