DVD description: "Pat Philips and Ettore Stratte continue to present the music of legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt with their annual festival at Birdland each November in NYC and their concert at a Lincoln Center theatre each summer. The ongoing and expanded interest in this style of 'hot jazz' is inspiring to the producers, to the musicians and fans who continue to be passionate about it. This DVD serves to promote and preserve this great music and its players. It is dedicated to Dorado Schmitt's dear mother, Marie, who unexpectedly passed away." -- from DVD insert.
