Video Diary: Django Reinhardt, "J'attendrai Swing"

From 1939, Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.


  1. What a great vintage clip! I had not seen that before. Thanks!
    I forwarded that clip to a friend, and he then referred me to this animation that has a cool Django R. scene. Have you ever seen the cartoon "The Triplets of Belleville? They do a little cameo spoof of him in this film (it was made in France about 6 years ago, but they made it to look like an old film from the late 30's.

  2. Sorry - he's the link to the animation:

  3. I saw that film years ago. I hadn't recalled the Django connection. May be time to revisit the film.

    Thanks for sharing Senor Nitro-Retro (if that is your real name)
