    Today I Discovered Django Reinhardt

    Dijango Reinhardt. 1910 - 1953

    I met an American guitarist today who played with the late Les Paul,

    He mentioned to check out Dijango Reinhardt. I did, this clip sums up his life.

    This clip just shows you how good he is, bear in mind Dijango had only two fingers.
    Due to his disadvantage he created a new sound, Hot Jazz!!! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    Oh how the Belgians want him to be a Belgian!! rofl

    he only had two fingers? One on each hand? that's who rumours come to be ...

    "At the age of 18, Reinhardt was injured in a fire that ravaged his caravan. Returning from a performance late one night, he
    apparently knocked over a candle on his way to bed. While his family and
    neighbours were quick to pull him to safety, he received first- and
    second-degree burns over half his body. His right leg was paralysed and
    the third and fourth fingers of his left hand were badly burned."
