Les Triplettes – homage to Django

May 14, 2008, 1:58 AM

Fun to see the great jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt‘s caricature in Les Triplettes de Belleville (one of the best animation films ever made – not kidding). If you’re wondering about his left hand fingers, Django lost two of them in a fire at the age of 18, yet he managed to relearn and master the quitar, becoming a jazz guitar legend, in spite of his handicap.

If you ever find yourself working late at night and want to be energized, hoping to work for hours without feeling the time flying by, do listen to Django. Highly recommended for sunny afternoons as well ;)
