Beautiful Django Reinhardt LP

As already mentioned I love those french 10 inch records from the fifties on the Vogue and Swing labels. Now two weeks ago I discovered this beauty in a local record store:

Swing M 33.330 was released sometime in the early fifties. Although I already have all the music on this LP (on a CD as well as on really badly stereofied LP on the Period label), i could not resist the beautiful design so I had to buy it. I wonder if Charles Delaunay designed this one? The owner of the Swing label was the son of artists, and some of the covers of Vogue and Swing 10 inch LPs were designed by him.

So here’s some some music to go with the art, taken directly from the above copy of M 33.330: “September Song” (yes, I know it’s May right now). And please excuse the rough start!


According to Tom Lord’s Jazz Discography, this was recorded at a”Surprise-Partie” at the Studio Montparnasse of the Radio Diffusion Francais in Paris, France, on November 8 or 13, 1947 with the following people involved:

Gerard Leveque (cl), Eugene Vees (g), Django Reinhardt (g) Emmanuel Soudieux (b) Andre Jourdan (d).

Enjoy!
