Art Lange
Pulse (Towers Record), November 2001

"The clean, crisp sound quality belies the age of the recordings, and Reinhardt shows why his playing influenced several generations of jazz and rock guitarists-with dazzling, ringing single note runs and slashing chords that energize ordinary tunes like "Them There Eyes" or "Sweet Georgia Brown." His spiky phrasing is a perfect contrast to the silky tone of Stephane Grappelli's violin, and the propulsive rhythm of the all-acoustic Quintet of the Hot Club of France just won't quit-even without drums. At this price, such great music is a steal."

D. Oscar Groomes
O’s Place Jazz Magazine, November 2001

"These eighteen songs come from five different sessions recorded between January 31, 1938 and March 21, 1939. The constant partner for Django (guitar) is Stephane Grappelli on fiddle. It is classic bluegrass."
