This album features three of the most outstanding musicians who turned the violin from classical use to Jazz. Stephane Grappelli was one of the original members of the famed Django Reinhart Hot Club of France and worked all over Europe playing the top Jazz festivals. Stuff Smith, who became one of the heroes of the swing era, was one of the first to play an amplified violin and landed many Jazz awards. Jean-Luc Ponty has taken up the mantle from Grappelli and Smith, and his outstanding viruosity in his early days can be heard on these recordings.
