[Portrait of Django Reinhardt, Aquarium, New York, N.Y., ca. Nov. 1946]

 

1 negative : b&w ; 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 in.

 

Caption from Down Beat: The serious countenance of Django Reinhardt, cover subject by Bill Gottlieb for this issue, is in deference to the great French guitarist's current concert tour with Duke Ellington. Django, who has built a tremendous American reputation through his waxings with the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, was brought from Europe last month by the William Morris Agency, and one of his first concerts in this country was the Beat's Chicago Civic Opera House concert earlier this month. He will appear with Ellington Nov. 23-24 at Carnegie Hall.
