Came across the above song by vocalist Nina Vox (http://www.myspace.com/ninavox

NINA'S LATEST SONG 'I WISH I'D LIVED WHEN DJANGO DID"
Hi Lovely People,
In my humble opinion Django Reinhardt was the most incredible guitarist of all time. Despite losing all but two fingers in a fire, he re-learnt the guitar and created an original sound that continues to intoxicate to this day. If there was ever a time and place I would have loved to have lived, it was Paris, between the wars! Art, Philosophy, Bohemia, Jazz, all the main food groups… My favourite songwriter, Tony King, has created a passport back into that magic time… Tony sings the harmonies and also plays all instruments, except for the wonderful violin of George Washingmachine. You’ll be blown away! I’ll meet you for a coffee in Montmartre!
Love Nina x
