Joe Venuti - Hot Swing Fiddler - Radio Jazz Violin Classics (Vinyl, LP, Album)

Comments

  1. Violinist Joe Venuti's second recording with Italian guitarist Lino Patruno's group follows the initial one by three years. The standards (which include a Gershwin medley) are all quite familiar, but these versions are full of enthusiasm and interesting ideas. Venuti was in top form throughout his final period () and seemed to enjoy interacting with the five other horns on this session.
  2. Venuti pioneered the violin as a solo instrument to the jazz world. He was famous for a fast, "hot" playing style characteristic of jazz soloists in the s and the swing era. His solos have been described as incredibly rhythmic with patterns of duplets and running eighth and sixteenth notes.

  4. Joe Venuti ('78) Joe Venuti is widely regarded as the first great jazz violinist. Born to Italian parents who emigrated to the States (he claimed to have been born on the boat, though as we'll see, all his stories are to be taken with a pinch of salt!); he learned classical violin as a child, the fruits of which can be clearly seen in his exciting melodic and rhythmic technique.

Hot jazz on violin and guitar (as Barry McCanna noted in his review, 11 of the 14 tracks feature Venuti's long-time partner Eddie Lang on guitar, and the three that don't feature Dick McDonough on guitar on "Sweet Lorraine" and "Hiawatha's Lullaby" and Frank Victor on "Satan's Holiday" -- these were recorded after Lang's tragic early death in March ) doesn't get any better than this/5(10).
