Stéphane Grappelli

Real Name:
Stephane Grappelly
Profile:
The French jazz violinist, born 26 January 1908 in Paris, France, died 1 December 1997 in Paris, France. His name was originally Stephane Grappelly but was changed (probably by a record label) some time in the late 1950s or early 1960s, though he continued to sign autographs with the original spelling later in life.
One the greatest violin jazz prebop player (but also pianist), Stéphane Grappelli is known for his legendary collaboration with Django Reinhardt in the '30s and '40s in their Quintette Du Hot Club De France.
The group disbanded when the war broke (Grappelli went in London while Django stayed in France).
In England, he played with pianist George Shearing.
After the war, he appeared on hundreds of recordings including sessions with Oscar Peterson, Jean-Luc Ponty, Gary Burton and countless other great musicians (including few recordings with Django Reinhardt again)
He never stopped playing worldwide until his death at the age of 89.
