Django's birthday

Let's have a thought for this extraordinary man. Without him we would not be together :)

I propose to celebrate his birthday with a special song, often considered as a poor version of Django's Tiger. This song is Mano, Django chose this title in reference to a guitar player he knew Mano Rena.
I made some research and contacted the relatives of Mano Rena to get new pictures of Mano and get a sense of the relationship between Django and Mano. It seems that the book of Michael Dregni has some mistakes about Mano: she was not Romani and she was probably not a paramour of Django.
I let you read the article and hope you'll enjoy the transcription and play it as an alternate to Django's Tiger some time in your jams.


The other transcriptions of this Oct 4 1947 are coming soon (Blues primitif, Moppin the bride, Insensiblement, Gypsy with a song)
