Friday night music with long time jazz guitar favorite, three fingered lightening Django Reinhardt with Stéphane Grappelli doing Sweet Georgia Brown.
The word “genius” gets thrown around a lot in reference to artists and musicians — sometimes correctly, sometimes a little overzealously. But if it applies to anyone, it’s Django Reinhardt. With no formal training, the Roma guitarist created a new style of music in the 1930s and ’40s that came to be dubbed “gypsy jazz.” His playing was at times joyous, fierce and lyrical, and his intensity was such that he’s one of the few European musicians to exert a serious influence on the American art form of jazz.

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared.

Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
