I've been listening to a lot of Django Reinhardt and Robin Nolan recently. I love the sound of the gypsy jazz guitar - but I like it even better accompanying a saxophone. Robin Nolan did this awesome album last year with Benjamin Herman which is one of my all time favorites called, Swing de Paris. But I'm looking for something with French vocals or sax that anyone could recommend. Here are some examples: :bluewink2:

Check out some Biréli Lagrène: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biréli_Lagrène

YouTube has some clips of him with saxophonist Frank Wolf.
Here is one example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5KgAElMJyY

I recently posted a thread (which didn't get any reaction here) with some information on a new movie about Django:
https://forum.saxontheweb.net/showt...about-guitarist-Django-Reinhardt-during-WW-II
They have a clarinet player in the movie performing with Dutch gypsy guitar star Stochelo Rosenberg.

Stochelo Rosenberg did some things with James Carter on saxophone and a Big Band.

Don’t forget Belgian Gipsy Jazz, Koen De Cauter was and still is a great singer/player

I actually also like to play over a gypsy guitar rhythm.

Here are some examples I recorded (amateur alert!) for several TOTM threads in the past years using free Gypsy backing tracks from the internet:
