This little treasure keeps vanishing from youtube, so must be enjoyed NOW.


I love those Reinhardt-Grappelli duets. The video that dearieme posted reminds me that I never understood why critics always gave Grappelli a back seat to Reinhardt.


I went to three or four Grapelli concerts. Wonderful fellow - he'd take a solo, you'd be convinced that he'd painted himself into a corner and then "in one bound he was free". To vary a remark of Larkin's, how dreadful to have lived in the twentieth century but died before hearing the music of The Quintet of The Hot Club of France!
