113: “Minor Swing” by Django Reinhardt/Stéphane Grappelli – Quintette Du Hot Club De France

Yes, you like?Here’s a jazz standard reaching out to us from its creation back in the 1930’s.

Django Reinhardt, pioneering jazz guitarist, had a rough time with his health to put it mildly, but suffered through to become one of the founding explorers of jazz music despite partial paralysis on his fingering hand (left hand).  You might even argue that the limitations of his fingering forced him to become more creative and helped him reach his potential.

This song is guaranteed to make you tap your foot or nod your head or get nervous or pass gas or something.  Else you might call an ambulance.

Django.  Enjoy.
