Just came across this video of Stephane Grappelli, David Grisman, and Mark O'Connor on the Johnny Carson Show, 1979 (and it didn't seem to have been linked previously on this forum). Although the fashions have changed, this music is still hot! David Grisman and Martin Taylor have recently come out with some very nice recordings with an unmistakeable GJ flavor.https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=113&v=pJ-JbVFk1GY
Yeah and yet he still managed to win, on his "side" instrument, a national title in bluegrass guitar. And mandolin too.
That's when you wanna yell "not fair!".
There's Grappelli's quote on Mark's site: "Mark O’Connor-he’s not what you would call ... human.”
