Gypsies - or more correctly, Romany, Romani or Roma people - have always been nomadic, and their music has been influenced by exotic Eastern, European and Arabic idioms. But GYPSY JAZZ had it's roots firmly in France, where it is known as JAZZ MANOUCHE, and it's origins can be traced directly to guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Ste'phane Grappelli, who teamed up at the Ho^tel Claridge in Paris, during the summer of 1934, to form Le Quintette Du Hot Club de France. Other important Jazz Manouche/Gypsy Jazz musicians included violinist Michel Warlop, accordionists Gus Viseur and Tony Mure'na, guitarists Joseph Reinhardt, Baro, Matelot, Sarane Ferret (the latter trio, of Les Freres Ferret), and Oscar Alema'n, all of whom are also featured heavily herein. The fifty-four sides compiled on this 2-CD set were all recorded between 1934-47, which was very much the "Golden Age" for the genre.
