    Django Reinhardt, everyone's favorite gypsy jazz guitarist, would have celebrated a birthday today. Check him out in this French/Italian film, La Route du bonheur (or Saluti baci e), a year before he died.

     

    Or, if you prefer the cartoon Django from The Triplets of Belleville...

     

    The Frenchmen all prefer what they call "le jazz hot." Formidable!
