All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Stephane Grappelli, 5-17-1957

Here is another one that is from 1957 and it is short but sweet. I saw Stephane Grappelli back in the late 80s and he was old but full of fire. He wasn't old during this recording but he was great back then too.

  1. Thanks for posting a Grappelli boot!

    I shook hands with David Grisman after a DGQ show and told him what a pleasure it was to meet one of the great jazz violinist's friends and playing partners.

    Too bad Stephane and Dawg and Jerry Garcia never recorded together. Or will that be your next surprise post?

  2. Thanks for the great vintage jazz, AZ. It will never be old, always vintage. All the best to you.
