    Mr. Kliphuis has done a great service to those who would understand and emulate the style of the brilliant violinist Stephane Grappelli (whom I was privileged to see perform live in Greenwich Village in the late '80s). He analyzes the harmonies and technical feats of Grappelli in a most accessible...

    fashion, providing examples for the reader/player that will help him/her play in Grappelli's style. I was pleasantly surprised by the clarity of the book's writing, and I wound up sitting for far longer sessions of playing the examples than I had expected.
