Stéphane Grappelli

Stéphane Grappelli

1908 - 1997

Origin: France

Main instrument: Violin

Genres: Jazz, Manouche jazz (Gypsy jazz), Swing

 

This self-taught French musician is considered the greatest jazz violin virtuoso of all time. Grappelli honed his prodigious talent on the streets and in silent film houses-and then he met guitarist Django Reinhardt. Together, the two musicians founded the hugely successful Quintette du Hot Club de France. In the 1950s, Grappelli launched a prolific solo career, one that featured numerous collaborations in the jazz arena and beyond. Stéphane Grappelli continued to record and perform until the end of his life.
