Although Django Reinhardt s Gypsy Swing legacy has a worldwide following today, we shouldn t overlook the years when the style went into decline after his death in 1953. During years of oblivion, Django s music was handed down in trailer parks and caravans, played at gypsy-gatherings and swapped by collectors of rare records. Thanks to a few devoted musicians, this music was saved from darkness. Romane was one of the pioneers in the revival of Django s style. Today, Frémeaux celebrates Romane s importance with this first volume of a complete set of his recordings entitled Swing for Ninine.
