Gypsy jazz is a style of jazz music played on acoustic instruments, mainly guitar and violin. The style is closely associated with the great Django Reinhardt(1910-1953), whose guitars had a distinctive tone. Today, half a century after Django’s death, gypsy jazz guitars are built by luthiers around the world.
Jean “Django” Reinhardt(23 January 1910 – 16 May 1953) was a Belgian-born French guitarist and composer of Romani heritage.

Reinhardt is often regarded as one of the greatest guitar players of all time and was the first important European jazz musician who made major contributions to the development of the genre. After his third and fourth fingers were paralyzed when he suffered burns in a fire, Reinhardt used only the index and middle fingers of his left hand on his solos and invented an entirely new style of jazz guitar technique (sometimes called ‘hot’ jazz guitar) that has since become a living musical tradition within French Gypsy culture. With violinist Stéphane Grappelli, he co-founded the Quintette du Hot Club de France, described by critic Thom Jurek as “one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz.

Reinhardt’s most popular compositions have become jazz standards, including “Minor Swing”, “Daphne”, “Belleville”, “Djangology”, “Swing ’42″, and “Nuages”.

I was very pleased to find Caravan Guitar’s knowledgeable sales approach very enlightening and helpful. I was encouraged to take my time in carefully selecting the right guitar for me and I walked away knowing that I got a great guitar.
