The Quintette du Hot Club de France, an allstring quintet consisting of violin, bass and three acoustic guitars, introduced a new sound to jazz and caused a sensation in Europe. But with the group’s breakup, Django Reinhardt had to start from scratch. He organized a new band that at first also used the title of the Quintette du Hot Club de France although it eventually was billed under the guitarist’s name. Instead of the third guitar, a drummer was utilized while Stephane Grappelli’s spot was taken by clarinettist Hubert Rostaing, a part of Django’s groups off and on until 1948.
