Sunday's Selection

Today's pick is by a musician named Stephane Grappelly. He was born in Paris in 1908 and died in Paris in 1997.

He was a self-taught violinist, and before he was 20 he met a fellow musician, Django Reinhardt, and they formed probably the most famous jazz quintet of all time called the 'Quintette du Hot Club de France in 1934.

Grappelly has a playfulness about him when he plays and he can hop around his violin like nobody's business.

Hope this selection will ease you into your Sunday.
