Released in 2003, this four-disc box set presents many of the finest recordings by the Belgian-born performer Django Reinhardt, considered by many to be the greatest jazz guitarist of all time. Drawing from sessions cut between 1934 and '52, the compilation features Reinhardt playing with his lauded pre-WWII ensemble, the Quintette du Hot Club de France, which included his brother, Joseph, and, most notably, violin virtuoso Stephane Grappelli. While the deft, nearly telepathic interplay between Reinhardt and Grappelli is the collection's main attraction, SWING DE PARIS also finds the innovative and amazingly agile six-stringer sitting in with American jazz luminaries such as saxophonist Coleman Hawkins and bandleader Glenn Miller. Although the anthology faces stiff competition from other Reinhardt compilations, SWING DE PARIS stands out with its sheer number of tracks (103) and its wide range of material.
