In a sense this recording represents a passing of the torch, as virtuoso violinist Stephane Grappelli bridges two generations of great acoustic jazz musicians --- from his all-time classic 1930s recordings with the Hot Club of France (and the great guitarist Django Reinhardt) to this remarkable recording with David Grisman, Mark O'Conner and Mike Marshall. Grappelli was incomparable in his Hot Club of France days, and he hadn't lost a beat by the time of this recording almost 50 years later. Grisman's music was greatly influenced by Reinhardt and Grappelli and the old Hot Club of France, and this CD represents a kind of tribute to those great pioneers of acoustic swing music --- but it's much more than just a nostalgic nod to the past. It's a historic recording in its own right, and the music is truly wonderful. Grisman and Grappelli sound as if they'd been playing together for years, and the respect they have for each other is obvious throughout the entire set. It's not an exaggeration to say that Grappelli and Grisman are two of the very best and most innovative musicians (especially on acoustic string instruments) of the 20th century, and it's a real treat to get to hear them play together on this recording. I'm sure you won't be disappointed in this CD, and if you're interested in hearing some of Grappelli's great early recordings with Django Reinhardt you can't go wrong with the wonderful 5-CD box set called "Django Reinhardt: The Classic Early Recordings in Chronological Order." Enjoy!!

French violinist Stephane Grappelli played a number of times with Old & In The Way alum David Grisman in the late '70's & early '80's. On this swinging 1981 trip to the Bay Area, Grappelli & Grisman played The Great American Music Hall in SF, as well as some of the best shows I have seen in my life, at The Paul Masson Mountain Winery in Saratoga(thanks again, Bruce!), which is where the cover shot was taken. I believe Stephane was in his late 60's when this was recorded, but he kicks it out with the best right here, with the flying fingers of David Grisman on mandolin. From the intro to "Shine" to the frantic Gypsy-esque finale of Tzigani>Fisztora>Fulginit, Grappelli & Grisman play as sweet as you could want. The only problem I have is that this should be a double set. FYI, the Gypsy medley finale derives from the soundtrack to the '70's film KING OF THE GYPSIES. I heard these two play a number of tunes from thatfilm on King Biscuit in around 1977, & I've wanted that soundtrack ever since, but for some reason, it was never released. Write your local record mogul! We need to hear more from these two geniuses.

I defy anyone to listen to this CD without grinning. This music is pure joy. If you play a string instrument, your jaw will drop down to your knees. Grappelli's technical virtuosity is astonishing; what's even more remarkable is how effortless he makes it sound. And Grisman smokes. This is why God gave us fingers.

Grapelli, Grisman, Marshall, O'Connor, Wasserman. If those names don't mean anything to you... they SHOULD. They are absolute masters of some of the finest, most beautiful, moving, virtuoso music on the planet. Grapelli, decades removed from his celebrated partnership with Django Reinhart is joined with Mandolin master Grisman, with Mark O'Connor on guitar (he also plays an impossible violin duet with Grapelli on "Tiger Rag"), Montreaux and Modern Mandolin Quartet master Mike Marshall and bass master Wasserman on jazz standards, gypsy swingers, and other pieces to knock your acoustic socks off.

Grappelli, Grisman, and Mark O'Connor all playing together in a classic performance. My favorite piece is Tiger Rag where Grappelli and then 18 year old O'Connor play a transcription for two violins with lots of improvising throughout. Grappelli commented later that O'Connor would do great things with his music, and his prediction has come true. O'Connor displays his virtuosity on guitar as well on the other tunes. Grisman, O'Connor, Marshall, and Wasserman provide a great acoustic background for Grappelli's legendary sound. These are tunes that were not typically in the DGQ repertoire, but they sound like they've been playing them for years. Another bonus is Tiny Moore's electric mandolin solo on Satin Doll. This album is a true classic.

This is a rock solid performance where Grappelli and Grisman elevate themselves to near God status. I don't know if I have ever heard anyone any one blend so smoothly with Grappelli. This is my all time favorite version of Satin Doll, and Sweet Georgia Brown & Tiger Rag are exceptional too. All in all this is a must have cd if you are a fan of either of these to musical giants - you can't go wrong with this one!!!

All the DAWG grandchildren seem like really happy to play with this fabulous Jazz Violin Player.
During this concert, Grappelli must have found the image of Django on the performance of Grisman. Grappelli's elegant and sophisticated playing was a complete contrast to Grisman's totally extravagant and free pikin style. This is almost same as assortment of QHCP. I was rearlly impressed with their tender-hearted tones.
