Just listening to this guitarist (French?) who plays very much in the Reinhardt style - nothing wrong with that! He has a great sax player in some of his stuff on the album Just the Way You Are. Anyone know who the sax player is?

Nice to see Birelli laying back a bit. In the past he's been too "incendiary" a player for me. Technique takes over and taste goes out the window. This is lovely playing. "Nuages" sounds great played on tenor, one of my all time favourites. I do love Django, tasteful and barking mad at the same time.

I agree with you about Lagrene - as with many modern jazz layers, technique can overwhelm taste. Fortunately, not a problem I have, since I have neither taste nor technique. Ah, artistic freedom!

Taste and technique are not essential, as long as you have some good gigs. And money.

I actually sort of liked the electric Birelli from the past.

I much prefer Stochelo Rosenberg's playing. He seems to have more of Django's soul thank many other of his disciples.
Money is quite nice too, so I hear...

i agree that some of the modern guys are a bit OTT - chops running amok.

I really like Patrick Saussois, Rodolphe Raffalli, Philippe Nedjar, plus the old 'uns like Paul Vidal, Matelo Ferret, Moermann etc. But for sheer charm and swing it's Django every time.
