“Jazz attracted me because in it I found a formal perfection and instrumental precision that I admire in classical music, but which popular music doesn’t have.”
Jean “Django” Reinhardt

“… 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.”
Jeff Beck

“I had records of his when I was 10 years old. It just blew my mind that anyone could play a guitar like that. Still does.”
Charlie Byrd
