Some crazy German classical radio station I was streaming played a great bit of Gershwin from an album from Stéphane Grappell. Two great violinists from different worlds.
YouTube wouldn’t cough it up, but I did find this bit from a BBC piece on how they got together with a fun version of “Jalousie,” which apparently kicked off the collaboration. I think it works because neither is trying to sound like the other–the distance between the smokey jazz club and the concert hall: maybe not so far after all.
And for good measure, a wonderful version of “Autumn Leaves” by Grappelli and Oscar Peterson
