Django Reinhardt was a musical genius and his influence on generations of guitarists has been immense. In 1930s Paris, the young gypsy guitarist created much of the sounds and techniques that we now think of as the sound of the guitar. An unpredictable character who cared nothing for money or social constraints, the public were never sure if Django would actually show up for a concert or choose to go and play billiards instead, leaving another band member to pretend to be the star and play Django for the evening.
