Although hollow-bodied acoustic guitars with electric pickups had already been used by musicians such as Freddie Green with the Count Basie Orchestra, these musicians played the instrument much as they would have an acoustic guitar.
They simply took advantage of the increased volume of sound to finally make themselves heard over the trumpets and saxophones. Only Charlie Christian had consistently explored the many possibilities that an electrified guitar offered, in the few short years he had played with the Benny Goodman Big Band and Sextet before his death at age 23 in the early s.
The recordings are taken primarily from the late 40s and early 50s. They dispel the notion that without the classic Quintet Django's playing suffered a general decline and lack of focus.
Listening to the elegiac improvisations on tunes such as "September Song" and "Crepuscule," with their drawn out notes and tender shifts in tempo and volume, one can hear Reinhardt exploring the possibilities afforded by electrification. Combined with his compelling technique and unending musical curiosity, he brings a fresh and beautiful new sound to jazz.
It is not the music of the old Quintette, with Django's amazing single string arpeggio runs and startlingly assured staccato improvisations.
Although he can still play with the same prewar speed, the ability to draw out the notes and play audibly even in the softest of passages produces solos of tremendous beauty and variety. If you haven't heard Django Reinhardt on electric guitar, you have missed a part what made him so special. Still highly recommended after all these years.
