I Got Rhythm [Black Lion] Review

by Scott Yanow

This attractive two-LP set features violinist Stephane Grappelli playing a concert with one of his finest backup groups, The Hot Club of London (comprised of guitarists Diz Disley and Denny Wright along with bassist Len Skeat). Together they perform nine standards, three Django Reinhardt tunes and a Gershwin medley with enthusiasm and mostly hard-driving swing. All of this music has since been reissued on a CD (Live in London) with one additional track added.
