AllMusic Review by

This follow-up to his earlier duo session with guitarist Marc Fossett is unusual in many ways. Grappelli alternates between violin and piano on his bittersweet ballad "Amanda." Fossett contributed three strong originals, including the opener "Rapid," the happy-go-lucky "Bluesy," and the charming unaccompanied "Improvisation Nocturne." Wrapped within are straight-ahead but brief, familiar crowd-pleasers like "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and a furious "Liza." Only released as an import in the U.S., but worth the search for true Grappelli fans.
