Jean "Django" Reinhardt (23 January 1910 – 16 May 1953) was a Gypsy jazz guitarist. One of the first prominent European jazz musicians, Reinhardt remains one of the most renowned jazz guitarists. With violinist Stéphane Grappelli, he cofounded the Quintette du Hot Club de France, described by critic Thom Jurek as "one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz.
Babik Reinhardt (8 June 1944, Paris - 13 November 2001, Grasse) was one of Django Reinhardt's sons, and a guitarist himself. He did not learn the guitar directly from Django,who wanted him to learn the piano instead, but from various other family members. He was involved in the Gypsy jazz scene all his life, frequently appearing at the Samois-sur-Seine festival, but did not strictly adhere to the style in his playing, preferring a jazz-fusion sound.
