Stephane Grappelli and Martin Taylor perform Stevie Wonder's "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life."
Throughout the 1980s Taylor toured the globe, in the process recording over 20 albums with the French jazz violinist. Their 1987 collaboration with Vassar Clements, “Together At Last,” was nominated for a Grammy.
First picking up the violin when he was twelve, by 1930 Stephane Grappelli had given it up for a time in favor of the more lucrative piano.
He first met Django Reinhardt in 1931 and they began their musical partnership three years later.
It was for his time with Django and the "Quintette du Hot Club de France" that he would become known.
After the group disbanded in 1939 Grappelli would go on to perform and record with many others including Stuff Smith, Oscar Peterson, Michel Petrucciani and Claude Bolling, Jean-Luc Ponty, and Duke Ellington.
