Portrait Night 4/12 (Django Reinhardt)

Tonight’s #PortraitNight subject is gypsy hot licks guitar badass Django Reinhardt. I can think of no music purchase with a higher ratio of amazing music to dollars-spent than the JSP Records 5 disc Classic Early Recordings set that you can get for $23.00 from Amazon.

Also, this image turned up when I was looking for photo reference. I have no idea what it’s from but I really dig it:

If you’d like to suggest a #PortraitNight subject, you can do so either via the comments section here, or via my Twitter.

    That still you found is from the film “The Triplets of Belleville.” Check it out, it’s right up your alley.

    @Matt – Thanks for ID’ing that image. I think someone else in the comments suggested that as its origin as well. I’ve seen the film (and loved it) a while back. I don’t know why I didn’t recognize that as a still from it.
