Django cut sides with saxman Coleman Hawkins, violinist Eddie South, and other visiting American jazzmen. A hot country picker called Chet Atkins made a pilgrimage to see Django perform during his sole visit to the United States, in 1946 and 1947, and came away speechless. Tuning up his new string, the jazz-obsessed violinist dashed off a quick swing line.
The style of the score is 'Jazz'. In late 1946, following the war, Django finally realized his dream of touring the homeland of jazz, America. The pompeurs imitated stride piano accompaniment in the style of Fats Waller, hitting the first and third beats with bass notes, accentuating the second and fourth with chords. Bassist and drummer support the soloists well without imposing their personalities too strongly on the arrangements, and pianist 's free-spirited bounce meshes well with and 's more adventurous swing.

Les Paul recalled the thrill of meeting Django during that tour. Johnny Smith picked up one guitar and Django picked up the other.

The two smallest fingers on the hand became inflexible claws, leaving just his index and ring fingers with which to fret his guitar. It became his most popular song ever. He played around Gypsy campfire parties as well as in country fairs and city markets, or anywhere there was an audience to throw him coins. His official name—the one by which the gendarmes and border officials knew him as his family crisscrossed France in their horse-drawn caravan—was Jean Reinhardt, but among his fellow Gypsies and musicians he always preferred to be called Django.

A Spanish classical guitarist by the name of Andrés Segovia watched Django play at a Paris soirée and requested a copy of the music to perform.
