WHAT'S ON / Martin Taylor: Grappelli Tribute

Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival presents

Martin Taylor: Grappelli Tribute

3 August 2008 at 8:00pm

Stephane Grappelli Centenary Concert: Martin Taylor, with Florin Nicolescu and Jean Philippe Viret

Stephane Grappelli is regarded as one of the greatest of all jazz musicians, a violinist whose lovely tone, swing,and astonishing virtuosity amazed the world. He played with many musicians, but perhaps the most celebrated partnership (apart from Django Reinhardt) was with guitarist, Martin Taylor. For over a decade they toured the world together, with the great French bassist, Jean Philippe Viret.

To mark Grappelli’s centenary, Martin Taylor presents a tribute concert, reuniting with Viret and introducing the star gypsy violinist, Nicolescu, the man who Martin says sounds most like Stephane.
