Aleman closes integral Reinhardt set.

I learned from Finesse, an article in Dr. Jazz Magazine, written by Jos Linssen, that the final record, in a series of 20 2CD records with the integral Django Reinhardt collection has been released by Fremeaux.

Good news for all those Django Reinhardt fans, but ......

..... isn't it cute that the last item, Daphné, is played by his great rival Oscar Aleman?

DAPHNE (Django Reinhardt-Stephan (sic) Grappely (sic)) Fox Trot - 18616
