Video clip of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club (Paris) jazz band from 1939...
Features Stephane Grapelli on violin...note Django had the use of only 2 fingers on his chording hand due to injury as a young boy...

FWIW, the guitars are Macaferri jazz guitars...

2. Good
But I prefer this :

Minor Swing - Django Reinhardt & Stphane Grappelli

Thought he played a Selmer which Macaferri then copied at a much later date. :shrug:
