This month's trivia question is: what songs can you name that were recorded by both Django & Les Paul? I've come up with 16, but I'm guessing there are more. Here are 4 easy ones to get it started, feel free to chime in with yours:

How High The Moon

The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise

Brazil

Caravan

    maybe one month we can ask-

    “what songs can you name that were recorded by both Django & Benny Goodman?”

    This thread is useful for me as I’ve listened to virtually zero of Les Paul’s stuff. With players you always wonder “Where do I start?” and it’s a good a place as any. Thanks folks!

    Good question, Andy W. Awhile back, the trivia question dealt with tunes recorded by both Django & Charlie Christian. If you pull up that old thread, it will get you pretty close, since so much of CC's work was done with BG. Look for another trivia question coming soon...
