    Interesting, Eugene Vées seems to have changed guitar during the gig. Or maybe Django broke a few strings, took over rhythm players guitar so he had to bring out a spare?

    Amazing indeed!! What a scenography! Wil, I edited the article : it appears the Library acquired the J.C. Mehu collection. I don't know yet who is this guy.

    Lewis I didn't even know we could order copies, thanks for the tip!

    Good point Matteo, it could totally be a string issue indeed...

    @Mitch Once you click on an image, on the left side you will see a bunch of options, including an icon that looks like a shopping cart. It says "Acheter une reproduction" and you could choose a physical copy (~A4 size) or a high-resolution jpeg file. 25 euros per image (for personal use. For commercial use it would cost more).
