This collection brings together two distinct and individual jazz violinists on a single CD: Stephane Grappelli, one of the all-time greats and the first to establish the violin as a jazz instrument, and Denmark-born Svend Asmussen, lauded as a top Swing violinist from the mid-thirties on. These versatile violinists capture the intense gypsy spirit with songs such as "Lazy River," "Sweet Georgia Brown," and Jean-Luc Ponty's "Golden Green."
