AllMusic Review by

This fine LP (which has since been reissued as part of a CD titled Stephane Grappelli Meets Barney Kessel) has violinist Grappelli and guitarist Kessel (who is actually more influenced by Charlie Christian than by Django Reinhardt) finding a great deal of common ground during a set dominated by standards. The music often swings quite hard and the two main soloists (backed by rhythm guitar, bass and drums) bring out the best in each other.
