A couple of my favourite music videos

As Christmas Day enters its final minutes (in my time zone anyway) I've been watching some You Tube music videos.

Here are links a couple of my favourites: a vintage 1930s film of the Quintet of the Hot Club of France featuring the master Django Reinhardt with the pretty good Stephane Grappelly, and a more recent one (despite the b&w retro look) of the Japanese group Sweet Hollywaiians playing "Milenberg Joys" (watch the guy on the steel guitar).

Update early Boxing Day: the Django Reinhardt video was originally posted here together with some succinct background notes.
