Stephane Grappelli

    By

    Born in Paris in 1908, Stephane Grappelli experienced every decade of the jazz century and his story spans an astonishing 77 years, during which time he performed with the great names of jazz: Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and Oscar Peterson. But it's his performances with Django Reinhardt, for which he is perhaps best remembered. Contains exclusive interviews with Stephane as well as contributions from his family and friends, much newly discovered evidence on both Stephane and Django and many previously unpublished photos. This is a slice of music history, a testament to a man who invented his own style of jazz.
