Limehouse Blues

Post by Stan Dane on Thu 24 Apr 2014, 7:53 am

French guitarist Django Reinhardt, creator of "gypsy jazz," died in 1953. But the influence he had on guitarists and musicians since then is profound. The astonishing thing about him is that when he was 18 his left playing hand was severely deformed in a fire and he lost the normal use of his third and fourth fingers. He had to teach himself to play all over again. In doing so, he created a new genre of music.
Guitarist Jeff Beck said: "By far the most astonishing guitar player ever has got to be Django Reinhardt...Django was quite superhuman. There's nothing normal about him, as a person or a player...His electric playing in the forties is just humiliating."
The first song on this album is Limehouse Blues. It's a good example of the type of sound he created and his playing style. For those who like this and wish to dig deeper, the rest of the album is a nice sample of some of his best hits, such as Minor Swing and Nuages.
