Produced by Martin Taylor & Calum Malcolm

Look no further than Spirit of Django for a world-class performance from jazz guitar virtuoso Martin Taylor. 

On this celebration of Django Reinhardt and Gypsy Jazz, Martin is joined by John Goldie on acoustic rhythm guitar, Dave O'Higgins on saxophones, Alec Dankworth on acoustic bass guitar and Jack Emblow on accordion.

Performing tracks such as Cole Porter's Night and Day, Gershwin's Lady Be Good, a Martin Taylor original Chez Fernand, and, of course, the instantly recognisable Johnny and Mary from the Renault "Nichole-Papa" television commercial.

This is Taylor at his swinging best - not to be missed!

'A new and entirely original way to explore and extend the musical world of Django Reinhardt.' The Observer

'Having been initially inspired by the genius of Django Reinhardt, it's only natural that martin should enter the Spirit Of Django (AKD 237) for a jazzy Night And Day, Nuages and Swing 42.' In-Tune International
