[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: Guitar: Django Reinhardt. The Gypsy wandered off on his longest trip to date when he embarked for the States. He came without his instrument and I had to swipe this one from Fred Guy to get an appropriate shot. Note his much discussed crippled fingering hand. Maybe this will convince you guys who suspected that, if anything, the remarkable Reinhardt had a few extra digits to perform his famous brand of musical magic.
