Surprised
I think this site should list Bireli lagrene as one of the greats, alongside matheny.

I only heard him playing Django Reinhard' stuff
I like his technique, but I think this not enough to be mentioned along with the greats
Music matters, not speedy exercices

I take it you're just winding is up to get a response. Listen carefully, and you'll hear this guy turn be-bop phrases inside out and then play some beautiful, soulful slow phrase that's so easy you wonder why you didn't think of it yourself. Don't get confused between genuius and fast - Bireli Lagrene proves they're not mutually exclusive. Listen again.

Okay, I'm not saying I heard everything Lagrene did. But his 2001 CD Gipsy project is pretty usual manouche-style playing, even if it's beautiful and soulful.
Django Reinhard himself displayed great be-bop influences in his late records. Nothing similar in Lagrene's case

Hi, I'm new here. I just recently got Bireli's "Blue Eyes" CD, where he does some great renditions of tunes in a tribute to Sinatra. I think he can bop with the best of them. If you get a chance, listen to this CD.

the album "blue eyes" is pretty old , i memorized that cd by heart , believe me im with you . the lines, the feeling, the swing are amazing.
the guy is so damn gifted , a natural. Soulful and intense. I found thru the years is more difficult to say a lot of things like he does with all the "things" he plays.They make all sense. He is very lyrical and plays ballads very well too. You can put his name in everybook about modern players and guitar.Trust me.
