Jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli was born on this day in 1908. He and Django Reinhardt (whose birthday was Monday) were the founders and driving force behind the *Quintette du Hot Club de France* in the 1930’s. He continued playing well into the 1990’s. I had the opportunity to see him play in Toronto in 1993. They practically had to carry him onto the stage, but when he started playing, it was Paris in 1932 all over again. This is from a concert in Warsaw in 1991, with McCoy Tyner on piano.
