Harry Warren was the first major American song composer to write primarily for film. Every song on this CD is from a movie (except for the two songs Doug wrote). All of this music (except Nagasaki 1928) is from the 1930’s and 40’s. The songs are arranged in the hot swing style made popular by the great guitarist Django Reinhardt with violinist Stephane Grappelli and the Hot Club de Paris. The main body of work from Django Reinhardt is from the same time period. It was an easy marriage of styles taken from the same point in history on two different continents.

Harry Warren also happens to be Doug's great uncle!
