Claude Bolling Big band, Stephane Grappelli. A film by Robert Chalut
This historical recording session is the successful outcome of the mutual admiration of two jazz artists: the love of Claude for Stephane's violin music, and the interest of Stephane in big bands, and in Claude's one in particular. Long ago, it was a common wish to associate the rich sound of the brass and reeds of the band to the elegance and emotion of the violin expression. Look at the images, the eye and alert smile of Stephane, Claude's hands on the keys and his movements as he conducts. The friendly but firm discipline of the group. All of this tells of a certain atmosphere, too often absent in recordings as well as of a competent selection of repertoire. Grappelli's long career is rich in very good recordings. The mueic of this session is among his best. Moreover, the value of this video is especially significant in that it provides a much needed documentary film on the jazzman we could call the King of the violin.
