Can someone point me in the direction of a good version of this tune? I'm trying to learn it and suddenly realized that while I've got a transcription, I don't seem to have a recording. It doesn't make sense, as I recognize it when I hear it, but there you go. Thanks.

Two versions easily attainable:

1) Fremeaux' Intégrale Django Reinhardt Vol 11 "Swing 42" (1940-1942)
2) Tuxedo Big Band with Cristoph Lartilleux-Hart: Djangology

First one is of course the definitive version, the second one belongs more to the "nice-to-have" category; while Lartilleux plays excellently and some of the arrangements are actually quite good, the band is hardly a swinger - but then again, it's not a full time paid, professional orchestra, but rather a bunch of enthusiasts. And as most here know how hard it is to maintain a solid trio or quartet with regular rehearsals and gigs, the pains grow faster than the number of players when keeping it up with bigger formations. Making a big band record of Django's tunes with a top-level guitarist as the main soloist deserves support for the efforts sake IMO.
