EARLY DJANGO SIGNATURESpecial holiday issue of this influential French jazz periodical, this copy boldly signed by Django above the photograph of the Quintette. Features numerous photographs of early French and US jazz luminaries - Mezz Mezzrow on the cover, double-page centre spread including Quelques Musiciens Français, Chick Webb, Zutie Singleton, Bud Freeman and Bennie Morton. The Quintette du Hot Club de France was formed just two years before at the suggestion of the founders of the Hot Club - Pierre Noury, Hugues Panassié, and Charles Delaunay, who all contribute articles or artwork to the journal - becoming in effect their "house band" without a house. In 1937 they were chosen by American signer Adelaide Hall as residents at her club La Grosse Pomme. Virtually illiterate, his signature was the only piece of calligraphy that Reinhardt ever mastered, becoming a little more competent over time.
Quarto. Wire-stitched in the original pictorial wrappers.
Profusely illustrated throughout.
Contents loose from the wrappers which are a little worn, separating at the spine, with a few edge-splits and slightly loss to the spine.
