One of the earliest and most significant continental jazz groups in Europe, the Quintette was described Embraceable You - Ginger Rogers - Miss Ginger Rogers critic Thom Jurek  as "one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz.
According to Grappelli, the group evolved from a series of backstage jams originated by Django Reinhardt, with Stephane Grappelli, at the Hotel Claridge in Paris, where the two were engaged as members of a band led by bassist Louis Vola.
A series of European tours were very successful, with the group enjoying particular popularity in the UK. Several bassists and rhythm guitarists rotated in and out of the group, with Django and Grappelli remaining the sole constants.
Reinhardt, who spoke virtually no English, immediately returned to France, where he thought he would feel safer than in the UK. Grappelli, meanwhile, stayed in England. Django continued using the Quintette name with a different group, featuring Hubert Rostaing as the first of several clarinetists backed by a more conventional rhythm section with drums, bass and a rhythm guitar played by Django's son Lousson Reinhardtor his brother Joseph. This version of the Quintette often featured six, not five, players, and was usually billed as "Django et le Quintette du Hot Club de France", or sometimes as Django's "Nouveau Quintette".
Due to wartime shortages of material, this version of the Quintette did not issue many recordings some 70 titles were recorded between andalthough they did issue the first recording Quintette Du Hot Club De France - Sweet Georgia Brown / My Sweet (Shellac) the Django Reinhardt composition Nuageslater to become a jazz standard.
Inafter the war, Grappelli and Django re-teamed intermittently under the Quintette banner in an all-string Quintette Du Hot Club De France - Sweet Georgia Brown / My Sweet (Shellac), while Django continued to record and perform with his "Nouveau Quintette" and as a freelance soloist.
As before the war, the Quintette cycled through a number of rhythm guitarists and bassists. This last iteration of the Quintette performed and recorded until about In earlyDjango and Grappelli traveled to Rome to play a live engagement.
While in Rome, the two made their final recordings together, a total of 70 titles, with a piano trio composed of local musicians. By the late s, Grappelli's style of violin swing was out of fashion, and Django, no longer performing regularly, had become interested in playing modern jazz inspired by American bebop musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie. Django pursued modern jazz until his death inwhile Grappelli played and recorded mainstream swing music throughout the s and s when he was active on the music scene.
Throughout the s and s, a handful of European guitarists continued to play acoustic jazz guitar in the style of Django Reinhardt, largely ignored by the jazz press and with few opportunities to record or tour. Musicians such as Baro and Matelo Ferret both of whom were sometime-members of the Quintette du Hot Club de FranceEtienne Patotte Bousquet, and Tchan Tchou Vidal kept the sound of the Quintette alive, often mixing musette waltzes and traditional tunes with the American popular songs and original compositions favored by Django and Grappelli.
InBritish guitarist Diz Disley helped persuade Glimtvis - Mellemblond - Fra Et Sted to return to performing with an all-strings jazz group inspired by the Quintette du Hot Club de France, and Grappelli toured and recorded often using this format during the s.
