Django Reinhardt 1948 - Intégrale, vol. 16

Many recordings were made in 1947 - a few for disc (Swing, Decca, Blue Star) and many for the national radio. At the end of November, the guitarist teamed up once more with Stéphane Grappelli who had returned to his homeland for a concert in the Salle Pleyel and for two sessions organised by the radio show, Surprise-Partie. Many of these November titles starring the legenday string quintet were broadcast on 27 December, and others were programmed for January and February 1948. Ten of them closed volume 15 (Frémeaux FA 315) ; the remaining four open the present volume - the old Crazy Rhythm (already cut ten years previously with Coleman Hawkins), the delicate Manoir de mes Rêves (with the violin replacing the clarinet for the first time), the forever adorable Daphné (dedicated to Stéph's equally adorable English girlfriend), the curious Danse Nuptiale (alias Moppin' the Bride), based on the theme of Mendelssohn's Bridal March with swingning/bopping flavours. To top it all, an incomplete version of Tiger Rag was cut, no doubt on the same day as the beginning of the following year. However, it is unsure whether it was recorded on 21 or 28 November as all info concerning these two sessions are somewhat hazy.
But the year is not quite out...
