Before we get to the subject;
According to Spatzo there is 8mm footage of Django in 1946 just hours before his Carnegie Hall concert, speaking to a frenchman in a local bar.
Django appeared in a 45+ minute BBC TV Broadcast in 1948 with StĂ©phane Grappelli and their english quintet.
Django appears in the 1937 film "Naples Kissed by fire" (Naples au baiser du feu).
When I'm old enough, I'm going on a tour to find that footage. I encourage you all to search, if you're true fans of Django.
I'll be speaking with Django directly and making intimate recordings with him as soon as I get a hold of a working time machine.
I mastered the tracks before uploading them.
It is said that Django never played the electric guitar in company of StĂ©phane Grappelli.
In the 1948 recording of "Odette" (IntĂ©grale Volume 6) it sounds like Django is playing an electric guitar. The violinist sounds a lot like StĂ©phane Grappelli. Judge for yourselves.
The 1945 recording of "Sweet Sue" includes an insane solo by Les Lieber on Penny-Whistle! (Irish Tin Flute)
The 1949 Radio Broadcast of "Night and Day" with Paul Baron is the very last recording of Django on Acoustic Guitar. (not counting his 1950 Belleville and Nuages improvisations) And this isn't even on his usual Selmer. It's some other guitar.
Lastly: How about 1953 "Nuages"?
I was browsing the internet when I found an image of Django and Harry Volpe. They thought it was Joseph Reinhardt!
We all know how much alike they look. Also, on another site, they believed Joseph to be Django. :roll:
