Les Paul on Django


Recommended Posts



That clip is from the 'Chasing Sound - The Les Paul Story' documentary.


Django's influence on Paul was considerable in the days before Les 'chased' his 'New Sound' idea. If you listen to Les' recordings from the late '40s there's much Manouche in the mix.


Even the choice of tracks Les favoured right up to his iridium Club slots contained much of Django's regular fare.


Two Outstanding Greats of the world of guitar. Rarely will we see their likes again (and that's not merely trite hyperbole).
