The Specials Ska version of Guy Lombardo's song 'Enjoy yourself , it's later than you think'

[so far all I see is i-tunes 'buy this song' links ]

Did find the original big band recording: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHKCPorcBvk

When I close my eyes, I see you. No matter where I am, I can smell your perfume through these whisperin' pines...

Wow
Just an excellent Django Reinhardt cover. Lots of his fans in these forums I'm finding. Here's the man who played with three fingers (his third and fourth fingers were paralyzed after an injury in a fire):

lmao...oh no! That's not me...it's Maestro Bireli Lagrene. He's a phenomenally talented musician! Django's surviving brother named Bireli the heir to Reinhardt's legacy.

I'm a fan and he's not in many people's listening purview. I'm a hack rock guitarist. Played the circuit here in NYC for 25 years and I'm just done. I'm aspiring to curmudgeonly zen at this point.

You're avatar looks a bit like him so I had to wonder
I think there are about 3 people that are Reinhardt fans over in the C&V forum when they had a music thread up over there for awhile. I pick from Reinhardt's stuff to listen a little myself.

Ha! Richard Galliano, playing the accordion in that piece, is a giant in his own right as well. Mind-boggling virtuosity. My tastes run a vast gamut. Jazz, fusion, all sorts of ethnic musics, rock since it's inception until now, funk, r&b...avante guarde...

Here's a guy influenced by Django Reinhardt among others. I believe he plays with Boots Randolf on this one.

And yeah, my taste varies a little as well.

Just to mix it up a bit... easily one of the best live bands in the world right now; it's nice to see that some remember how to pull off arena rock. Big shoes to fill:
