Django Reinhardt and Stefan Grappelli Play in Paris circa 1935...record this clip in England in 1938

The first time I ever heard Stefan Grappelli and Django Reinhardt I stopped what I was doing and listened. How I would have loved to be in the Hot Club of Paris in the thirties!

This is an experiment using Google Video. Let's see if it works.

Excellent clip! Ah, to be drinkin' and smokin' at the Hot Club in Paris in the 30s and flowing to Django and Stefan. I had never seen the two play before, just photos. Great catch.

Great video; thanks! I came to guitar via Jimmy Page and Eddie van Halen, but Django is sublime.
