Review: stellar tribute to gypsy jazz and the region that spawned it as told through a violin. Superb playing throughout, including descendants of the original master, Django Reinhart. Different musicians perform on different tracks. The descriptions of the tracks on the inside cover do a much better job than I do.

If You Like: Stephane Grapelli, Darol Anger, Birelli Lagrene, John Jorgensen, and, of course, Django Reinhart

Favorite Tracks: (3) Les Enfants de Django (4) The Family (6) Keith (7) Samois (8) Waterlillies (10) Ghosts
