5.0 out of 5 stars excellent pairing of two greats
Wonderful CD, great arrangements, beautiful melodies, excellent musicians. Backing up Oscar and Stephane are Neils Henning Orsted Pederson on bass, who recorded a lot with Oscar Peterson, and Kenny Clarke on drums. The whole Jazz In Paris series is great.

1.0 out of 5 stars Decent recording, terrific artists...
fatally marred by the cheapest cardboard CD case imaginable and stuck with Sony's illegal DRM sofwtare that installs spyware on Windows computers without your permission. (Is there any limit to these idiots' greed?)

If you can possibly find another printing of this CD, get that instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Piano and Violin: A Charming Combination, May 16, 2008
This review is from: Jazz in Paris: Oscar Peterson-Stephane Grappelli Quartet, Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
"Jazz In Paris, Volume 1" by Oscar Peterson and Stéphane Grappelli was recorded in 1973. The album was digitally remastered on a CD format and released in 2001 by Verve Records. This is the first of two volumes. Peterson had always been the favorite musician of the mogul of record production, Norman Granz, who produced majority of Peterson's body of work under Verve Records. On this recording he shares the spotlight with a genius of violin, Stéphane Grappelli. Together with drummer Kenny Clarke and Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen, Peterson and Grappelli present a set of tunes played in the most ingenious renditions. Grappelli shows his expertise in violin and is pretty at ease with his deliveries while Peterson consistently plays so effortless and precise. The two legends of jazz perfectly complement each other making all the tunes delightful and enjoyable to fans of jazz piano and violin alike.

The entire recording is such a pleasure to listen to, but I believe they are at their utmost best in "My One And Only Love," "Walkin' My Baby Back Home" and "Makin' Whoopee."

If you want to experience the genius of two jazz greats in piano and violin, this is a perfect CD to own. For Peterson and Grappelli fans, this is a rarity and a keeper. A perfect companion CD is Jazz in Paris: Oscar Peterson-Stephanie Grapelli Quartet, Vol. 2. Wholeheartedly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, May 2, 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Jazz in Paris: Oscar Peterson-Stephane Grappelli Quartet, Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
What a great album, fans of Grappelli or Peterson will not be diappointed. They really swing on tracks 3 + 7. Peterson's piano stands out on track 5.

Very enjoyable listen! I could listen to either of these artists, but together they are heavenly. Sounds like they are having fun playing together

This review is from: Jazz in Paris: Oscar Peterson-Stephane Grappelli Quartet, Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
This is a standarts compilation by two of my favorite musicians. Not very original, but charming by all accounts. Also the combination of piano and violin is a delight.

I have been and continue to be a great fan of Oscar Peterson but this just didn't work for me and I deleted in total less than a day after download.
