Listen to “Nuages” (clouds) – by the great Stephane Grappelli & Django Reinhardt

Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt met in 1934, in France. Together with two others playing guitar and a fifth musician on double bass they formed the legendary Hot Club of France quintet. They continued to play together until the start of World War 2. Reinhardt was originally a violinist too, but an accidental fire badly damaged the fourth and fifth fingers of his left hand, which led him to take up the guitar. The rest, as they say, is history.
