Review of Young French gypsies keep Django flame alive

Oh my! A great way to introduce Django Reinhardt to listeners. The gypsy guitarist still influnces legions of new guitar players all over the world, fifty years after his passing. Woody Allen payed tribute to Django in his film 'Sweet and Lowdown' with Sean Penn. Piece would be a great supplement to the upcoming Django festival at Lincoln Center, NY, this coming July. Perfect for jazz stations, as well, nationwide.
