Stephane Grappelli - New Orleans 1986
Here's a video I found on YouTube of a show I did in New Orleans with Stephane Grappelli many years ago.
It says it was filmed in 1984, however, I think it was 1986.
I was 30 years old at the time, and very proud of that suit and very hip white shoes that laced up at the sides. It was filmed quite well, but I think the sound engineer had his ears painted on.
We were told by our US agent at the time that it was only being filmed for local TV, but since then it has appeared on many TV stations around the world, been released as a video, then on DVD.
Stephane, myself, Marc Fosset and Patrice Caratini never recieved the fee we were promised. That's show buisiness folks!
Enjoy it.......this one's on me!
