Stephane Grappelli

Stephane Grappelli

Stephane Grappelli (1908-1997) was a pioneering jazz violinist who founded the quintet of the Quintette Du Hot Club De France with Django Reinhardt. It was allegedly the first all-string jazz band.

'What an exhibition of style and sympathy!' Crescendo and Jazz Music 

 

Celebrating Grappelli was issued shortly after the legendary jazz violinist's death on December 1, 1997; it is actually under guitarist Martin Taylor's leadership, with Grappelli as an overdubbed guest on three tracks plus three duets repeated from their Reunion CD recorded in 1993. This tribute was conceived by Taylor for his Spirit of Django Band as a way of honoring the violinist. A number of standards long associated with Grappelli's repertoire are included: a re-creation of the 1934 arrangement of "Undecided," with Grappelli and Taylor joined by singer Claire Martin and the band. The violinist still swings effortlessly on "Chicago" and "Dinah." The remainder of the release features Taylor with his band; the best tracks include the samba-flavored "Years Apart," written by Taylor and Martin, and Taylor's duet with Jack Emblow on accordion on the lovely "Manoir de Mes Reves."
