I know Americans are reticent to say it, since we had some swinging cats on the fiddle, but this guy is the best in the world, and always so damn tasteful, as if he were a Cordon Bleu chef of swing... Bon apetit!

And merci, Mssr. Hookfinger...

I'm looking at my CD of Grappelli Live at the Blue Note, on Telarc, recorded when SG was 87 years of age. It is delightful, and I'm sure this will be too. Thanks so much.
