Django Reinhardt 1943-1945 - Intégrale, vol. 12

The New Quintet of the Hot Club de France wich Django Reinhardt had so strongly desired to found when he returned to Paris in summer 1940 was not to have the same life-span, regularity or originality as the pre-war set-up when Stéphane Grappelli faultlessly answered the most brillant of jazz guitarists. Howewer, it rapidly became more successful due to the context of the times. Is beginnings were remarkable, giving birth to an impressive amount od master-pieces (see vol. 10 & 11) including "Nuages" wich is probably the composer's most celebrated piece. Yet after a year, his interest in tis new offspring seemed to dwindle. Naturally, his situation had been modified over the past year. Without Americans and with the 'national revolution' ideology reigning in France, he was considered as the headman of European jazz wich was intented to offset the influence of the 'Judeo-Negro' jazz from over the Atlantic. Django took adbantage of the situation, leading a large orchestra in 1941 — a dream he had nurtured for a long while. The audience in the Salle Pleyel was appreciative so the exprerience was repeated quite frequently from 1941 to 1945 in France and Belgium, in the company of Freanchs and belgians and also with Americans from the ATC Band when Liberation arrived. The musician also being a proven composer, began working on several ambitious works, including a Symphonie and a Messe intended for Romanies. His tametable was loaded, distancing him from the Quintet. Moreover, he was now an eminent personage, earning far more than previously (though as a gambler his pay was quickly squandered) and he became increasingly capricious. As his old friend put it, he was not a bad person but fame went to his head...
