'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 (BKD 237) for a jazzy Night And Day, Nuages and Swing 42.' In-Tune International

 

Spirit of Django sees internationally renowned guitarist Martin Taylor creatively embrace the legacy of Django Reinhardt and Gypsy Jazz. Taylor delivers a world-class virtuoso performance on this, one of his most enduringly popular albums. Taylor 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', plus, of course, the instantly recognisable 'Johnny and Mary' from the Renault 'Nichole-Papa' television commercial, this is Taylor at his swinging best. Taylor's inimitable style, honed across a remarkable musical career spanning across five decades, has seen him recognized as the world's foremost exponent of solo jazz guitar playing.
