Django wrote this beautiful, haunting ballad (actually titled Manoir De Mes Reves) and first recorded it in 1943 in Paris with the Quintette du Hot Club de France. Evidently he composed this tune as a theme for a symphony he never finished. That's something I'm sure we would all love to hear, what a shame that it was never completed. Below is the chart commonly used. My trio plays it as a mid-tempo bossa, which is really fun. It's a great tune to call at jams; most folks know it & the head is quite simple. Classic Django, beautiful & imaginative.
