When Gypsy Jazz legend and jazz innovator Django Rheinhardt made his American tour in 1946, his stops in the mid-western towns of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska have been documented. What has never been recorded or publicized, a subsequent side-trip to Lawrence, Kansas, where negotiations for a future "Blue Ridge Mountain Gypsy Boys" tour east with Bluegrass innovator, Bill Monroe broke down. Reinhardt quipped, "Oui, la musique de Bluegrass peut etre confortable, mais je ne pourrais pas traiter les combinaisons de bavoir... Meme un bohemien a des normes." (Yes, Bluegrass music may be comfortable, but I could not deal with the bib overalls... Even a Gypsy has standards.)
