“Django” is a (beautiful) composition by John Lewis, the (great) pianist of the Modern Jazz Quartet!

A lot of the pieces on the album were written by gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt... and Escoudé is a bop guitarist, not a manouche-style player. He recorded a lot for Emarcy (France) back in the early 1990s.
