Django Reinhardts – “Daph

A movie about Django Reinhardt will open the german movie festival “Berlinale” in 2017. That´s a good reason to prepare another great Django composition for our Academy.
This time we created a lesson with Django´s song “Daphne”.
Django recorded the song quite often, but a classic is his version from 1949, together with Stephane Grappelli recoreded at the “rome sessions”.
The “Rome” sessions are very famous and Django´s creativity was on the highest level. He mixed bebop and swing with his gypsy guitar and created an unique sound for this period of time.
Our version contains a lot of Djangos ideas that he played on the 1949 recording including some nice lines and arpeggios. To get a first impression please watch the lesson trailer.
