Go Cat Go!
The score is transcribed in notation and tab. And many violin and clarinet parts are also transcribed. Only 4-stars because some rhythm guitar parts consist of only chord names with no suggested voicing. Now with regards to sources for the transcriptions. This is critical since Django recorded most of these songs many times. And the score's cites are confusing. So, here are the correct sources - From Recall's 2-CD 'Djangology': Belleville/Dinah/Dinette/Djangology/Limehouse Blues/Minor Swing/Nuages/Rose Room/Swing 42/Swing Guitar. From Master Classic's 'The Best of 1934-1939': Ain't Misbehaivin'/Old Folks at Home (Swanee River)/Stardust/Tiger Rag (Hold That Tiger). From RCA Victor's 'Djangology 49' or Bluebird's 'Djangology 49/Djangology (Remastered)': Marie/The World Is Waiting For the Sunrise. From Verve's 'Jazz Masters 38': Daphne/Melodie au Crepuscule. From Blue Note's 'The Best of Django Reinhardt': My Serenade. From 'Swing Guitar': Honeysuckle Rose. Best of luck with this music!
