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 Elios Ferré . Born in Paris in 1956, only three years after 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. "If you really want to play great music, music from the heart," Elios Ferré has said, "you must get your inspiration from the greats, such as Django." Ferré's brother, Boulou Ferré (b. 1951), also became a guitarist.
