Matelo Ferret w/ Guy Viseur: Djangology (Circa 1965)

Matelo Ferret was one of the central figures in the history of Gypsy jazz. He was the youngest of the guitar playing Ferret family which included Sarane Ferret and Baro Ferret. They all served an apprenticeship accompanying Django, and later had careers of theirs own.

For more Matelo Ferret see his CD: Tziganskaia and Other Rare Recordings 1960-1978 and Manouche Partie.

Joseph Reinhardt: Bric a brac (Circa 1955)

In this clip Django’s brother Joseph demonstrates his considerable skill as a soloist and composer. The unusual flat top guitar he is playing was supposedly built by Joseph himself. In many photos from after Django’s death, Joseph can be see holding this same guitar. Also take note that Joseph’s accompanist, Vivian Villerstein, is playing American style flat four rhythm on an archtop guitar. These are all characteristics of the post-Django era in Paris, in which musicians tended to stray away from Django’s style and repertoire.
