2013 collection from the guitar maestro containing six tracks previously unavailable on CD in the U.S.! A mere handful of Jazz guitarists rank on the same celestial plane as Gypsy genius Django Reinhardt and chances are excellent that he was a major influence on most of those others. Despite two fingers on his fretting hand being substantially paralyzed due to injuries suffered in a fire before he hit the big-time, Reinhardt made more mesmerizing magic on his axe without those digits than the vast majority of frets men do with the standard allotment of five. Les Paul, Chet Atkins, B.B. King, Charlie Christian, Wes Montgomery, Barney Kessel, Joe Pass, George Benson, Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Willie Nelson, Jeff Beck, and Jerry Garcia have all reverently sung his praises over the years.
