Violin in Jazz

Program by :

Whilst no-one questions the position of the fiddler in any kind of folk band, the jazz violinist constantly has to justify himself in the face of sceptics who believe that they should stick to either Bach or barndances. The violin is still not widely seen as being a natural instrument for swing, despite a history going back to the early days of Jazz.
We are featuring some of great jazz violin players starting with Joe Venuti, Stuff Smith, Ray Nance, Stephane Grappelli, Billy Bang, Jean-Luc Ponty, Regina Carter….
