How High The Moon – 1991
Stephane Grappelli and McCoy Tyner
Two giants have a rare encounter
In 1990, violinist Stephane Grappelli and pianist McCoy Tyner recorded a duet album.
Grappelli had long wanted to play with Tyner, and the pianist enjoyed performing in that setting with the veteran violinist.
With fine support offered by guitarist Marc Fosset and bassist Jean-Philippe Viret, Grappelli and Tyner both take fine solos on the uptempo piece, with the violinist’s stop-time chorus being a highlight.
