Award-winning violin legend Tim Kliphuis (Holland) teams up with America’s rising star on

gypsy jazz guitar Jimmy Grant (LA) to celebrate the music of famed musical duo, Stéphane

Grappelli and Django Reinhardt.

Re-creating the 1930s in Paris, and drawing inspiration from current-day classical and folk music,

they alternate moments of dazzling interplay with melancholy and sheer exhilaration, in an inspired

conversational journey that is different every night.

Together, they recorded Live at Antonello Hall, Minneapolis, now out as a download:
