The legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt, aided by the famous jazz violinist Stphane Grappelli and the “Hot Club de France”, created a world-famous style of music that has lost none of its magnetism down to the present day: “Gypsy Swing”. In this volume the pieces range from Django’s repertory to American jazz standards and Hungarian csardas hits. The use of a classical Gypsy String ensemble is presupposed: violin, solo guitar, rhythm guitar, and double bass. The use of three guitars is equally permissible, or, if necessary, only one.
These eleven arrangements are written for variable combinations consisting of melody part, accompaniment part, one or two parts with guitar patterns, and bass.
