Django Reinhardt

Django Reinhardt was a great guitarist. The Belgian Gypsy’s playing was intense and light hearted at the same time.  He swung with a superb and elegant aplomb.  He played astonishingly fast runs and heavy pulsing chords with wit and emotion, always tastefully serving the music (and he did it with a crippled left hand).

In photographs he looks like a confident dreamer, partly in another world, utterly capable in this one.  That is the countenance I sought to portray.
