Time for a break with ‘Gypsy Jazz’ creator Django Reinhardt and sometimes collaborator Stephane Grappelli.

The more orchestrated and complex versions are interesting and really show what good musicians can do with a basic tune. That said, there’s a purity to the originals I really like. I can almost see them sitting around a fire in a gypsy camp or some tiny club in Europe in the 1930’s smoking cigarettes, knocking back some drinks and playing tunes like this till all hours.
