Wikipedia : This day (May 16 , 1953), in Fontainebleau, France, died Jean Django Reinhardt, a virtuoso jazz adn gipsy guitarist.

Django Reinhardt@redhotjazz. : Django was bedridden for eighteen months. During this time he was given a guitar, and with great determination Django created a whole new fingering system built around the two fingers on his left hand that had full mobility

@allmusic : He would spin joyous, arcing, marvelously inflected solos above the thrumming base of two rhythm guitars and a bass, with Grappelli’s elegantly gliding violin serving as the perfect foil.

@last.fm : Born in Liberchies, Pont-à-Celles, Belgium into a family of Manouche Gypsies, Jean Reinhardt learned to play several instruments such as the banjo, violin and guitar from an early age; he spent most of his youth in Gypsy encampments close to Paris.
