Lagavulin Islay Jazz Festival 2015, 55.4% | Joe Pass' For Django

Joe Pass' For Django, released in 1964, is a tribute to the legendary gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, who passed away 11 years prior to this recording.

Lagavulin Islay Jazz Festival 2015 from refill American oak casks and European oak Bodega casks, bottled at 55.4% abv. Sláinte 🥃🥃

The small combo of two guitars, bass, and drums – Pass with John Pisano, Jim Hughart and Colin Bailey, keeps the album focused without being too cluttered.

Aside from the two tributes to Reinhardt (Django and For Django), all the tunes on this album were either written by Django or were an important part of his repertoire.

"It's refreshing to hear them done again, and done so tastefully by Joe Pass, who, in spite of his obvious devotion to Django, still maintains his own personality." - Mort Fega (WEVD, New York City, 1964).
