Archiving[edit]

Does anyone object to me setting up automatic archiving for this page using MiszaBot? Unless otherwise agreed, I would set it to archive threads that have been inactive for 30 days and keep at least ten threads.--Oneiros (talk) 01:35, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done--Oneiros (talk) 21:53, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

1929? Typo?[edit]

In the WWII section: "In 1929, Django's estranged wife ...." Should this read "1939"? Or is this bit of information out of place? The dates of WWII are 1939-1945.Blbachman (talk) 14:58, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

This whole section needs to be cleaned up - it seems to say he was in the U.K., but was under the protection of a Nazi. The timeline needs to be clarified. CitiCat 00:49, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Technique?[edit]

Would be nice to see a section discussing Django's technique and his style of chord-voicings/chord-tones etc., if any experts would care to do us the honour...with notation, if possible. Best regards. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Illiustrope (talkcontribs) 02:48, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Reference to Reinhardt by Jaqueline Winspear[edit]

Jaqueline Winspear mentions Gypsy violin/guitar player famous in Paris (ca. 1931) in her novel "Incomplete Revenge".The Romas and their culture figure a great deal in this novel. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.14.91.29 (talk) 15:04, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

From Here To Eternity[edit]

I think it should be mentioned that Django is talked about at length in chapter 32 of James Jones' novel "From Here To Eternity". 108.237.241.88 (talk) 09:40, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Lack of audio examples[edit]

There are many recordings of Reinhardt's playing. I'm surprised there aren't any samples included with this article. Aren't any of them available for this purpose? --Lance E Sloan (talk) 17:59, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

1928???[edit]

Early Life: "His first known recordings (in 1928) were of him playing the banjo." - This doesn't make sense, Django would have been eighteen! -It should be somewhere around 1922. Humming3ird (talk) 21:58, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

There's nothing wrong about the statement,Django's first known recordings dates from 1928, as a banjoist, as it also reads in the article. Are you suggesting that he did some,till now unknown, recordings as a 12 year-old ?Flight714 (talk) 16:20, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

"Influence"[edit]

I'm thinking most of this section -- including the long list of names -- has to go. Does there exist a single guitarist who is not influenced by Django, either directly or indirectly? --jpgordon::==( o ) 19:36, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

OK, trimmed. --jpgordon::==( o ) 15:45, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Nationality[edit]

This is the third time that someone deletes his French nationality ( and the references ) to replace it by belgian without any reference.

Django Reinhardt was French, he never had belgian nationality, he's born in Belgium during a trip, his parents were gypsies from Alsace.
