Coleman Hawkins All Stars with Django Reinhardt RCA 7EG8393 (1958)

I got this in Paris for ten euros, but no amount of real money will get me to part with it now. 45cat's entry for this 7" sez it was put out in 1958, and the back cover sez it was recorded in Paris, April 28, 1937.

Aside from it being the greatest tenor sax and the greatest jazz guitarist of all time, the All Stars were an impressive bunch themselves: Benny Carter, Andre Ekyan, Alix Combelle, Stephane Grappelly, Eugene d'Hellemes, and Tommy Benford on drums.

Here, somebody has it up for sale on eBay.
