[blog] Django Reinhardt in the press (of his time)

Dear everyone-

I'd like to draw your attention to this new blog I just created, solely dedicated to the appearances of Django Reinhardt in the press of his time (and a little after...)

I started gathering documents several months ago from the press archives of many countries: France, England, the United States, Algeria, Switzerland, Australia. As such, a lot of entries are in English. The goal of this work in progress is to get a better image of Django as he (both his music and himself) was perceived by the international press of his time. On this blog, you'll find things as diverse as concert and recording reviews, concert ads, obituary notices, some photos, and many more things (particularly links to some very interesting "revues", in French).

This work was inspired by the wonderful compilation of press articles Ted Cherrett put together several decades ago. If you have some articles you'd like to see featured on my blog, please send them my way and I'll be happy to mention your name in the post. If you have recommendations about papers, sources, archives, or any places where material might be found, I'm all ears too. Most of what I found I did online, but I did find some things on microfilm too.

Please take a look at the blog regularly, as I'll keep posting new elements!

Was anybody among you all a student at Columbia in the late 1930s......? No....?
Otherwise you would have read this in your local paper back then!

Thanks for your attention! gatsby B-)
