Additional Details

Massive 272-page book along with a complete “how to” section that explains how Django played each solo. The book contains some of Django’s best work. It covers a period of 17 years, from his first trio and quintet recordings to one of his last bop-influenced sessions, “Live at the Club St. Germain.” Multiple versions of many solos (I, II, III, IV, V, etc.) are included to show Djangos’ musical development over his long career.

If you live within the USA:
Priority Mail is the fastest option. It usually takes between two and three business days to arrive. That's an average and not guaranteed. If you need a guaranteed delivery, e-mail us about Express Mail.

If your order weighs just a few ounces, for example our Dawg Picks, we send it via First Class Mail unless you specify that you want it sent by Priority Mail. First Class Mail usually takes around three days to arrive. For slightly faster service, Priority Mail is the way to go. Most of our products (excluding "The Parking Lot Picker's Songbooks" which weigh two plus pounds) weigh under 16 oz. and can be shipped for the minimum Priority Mail rate, which is currently $7.75. For book/CD sets like our "Gypsy Swing & Hot Club Rhythm" we can usually ship two for one Flat Rate price.

If your order weighs over 16 oz., the Priority Mail rate is calculated both by weight and how far the package has to travel. For example, a two pound package shipped to Palo Alto, CA will cost $7.75. The same package shipped to Jacksonville, FL will cost over $13.00. But most of our book/CD sets can be sent at the Priority Mail Flat Rate of $7.75. Our shopping cart will calculate these amounts for you based upon where you live. We always double check these figures to make sure we are giving you the best value possible. If your shipping total is over $13.00, we can usually fit your order into a USPS Flat Rate box and the maximum shipping you pay is $15.05.

Media Mail is much less expensive than First Class or Priority mail: only $2.80 for the first pound. Media Mail takes ten days to two weeks to arrive. It's also restricted to printed matter such as books, CDs, DVDs, etc. Regular merchandise may not be mixed with books, CDs or DVDs and sent via Media Mail. For example, if you order, "Getting into Bluegrass Mandolin" book/CD set and Dawg Picks and click the "Media Mail" box in the shopping cart, we can ship the "Getting into Bluegrass Mandolin" book/CD set by Media Mail, but we'll have to send the picks via First Class and there will be an additional charge for the second package.

If you live outside the USA:
Air Mail (six to eight days to arrive) is the best option. Canadians should choose "Canada" for shipping their choice, Europeans should choose "E.U." Our shopping cart only calculates by the pound but we'll adjust your shipping rate down if at all possible. For example, if your package weighs 2lbs and 4oz, we may be alble to give you the 2lbs and 4oz rate rather than the 3lb rate, depending upon where you live and how the postal service calculates fees. If you'd like to know the cost of shipping BEFORE you order especially for PayPal customers, just drop us an e-mail ( ), tell us which products you want and where you live in the world. We'll calculate the amount and e-mail it back to you.
