While many think of the legacy of Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt as a quaint footnote to the kind of jazz that was played in the cafes of Paris during the 1930s and '40s, his legacy has lived on in players like Boulou Ferré . Born in Paris in 1951, only two years before Reinhardt's death, Ferré had a close connection to his legacy: both his father, Pierre "Matelot" Ferret (1918-1989), and his uncle, Baro Ferret (1908-1976), played in the Quintet of the Hot Club of France with Reinhardt. "The link between Django and my family is an artistic one," Ferré has said. "Django, with my father and my uncles, was a bit like the Pope and his bishops. Something like a trinity, religious and ritualistic."Boulou Ferré's brother, Elios Ferré (b. 1956), also became a noted guitarist.
