More Joe Venuti

By | 1978, Joe Venuti, Sketchbook | No Comments

Venuti was one of the earliest
jazz violinist and his recordings
with virtuoso guitarist Eddie Lang
directly inspired the Django-Grapelli
collaboration. Venuti was an indefatigable
session musician and recorded with a
raft of my favorite 20s/30s artists,
including the Boswell Sisters and Bing Crosby.
