Appearances by

Alec Dankworth, Allan Ganley Trio, John Horler

Also features John Horler and Alec Dankworth. Recorded in June 2007 in deepest South Oxfordshire, Homage to Grappelli is the first album by the eponymous band and the product of a project which has been sitting on the burner at the back for some 32 years! Indeed, the seeds were first sown when the infectious Grappelli style first swept over a six year old Chris Garrick, making this album truly an immaculate preconception. This recording is also notable as one of the last to be made with the late great Allan Ganley at the drums.

 

Reviews

 

09/12/2007 Clive Davis, Sunday Times

Nigel Kennedy may grab the column inches when he plays at Ronnie Scott’s, but there is no question that John Dankworth’s protégé Chris Garrick is our finest jazz violinist. Much of his energy, of late, has been devoted to a raucous fusion band, but here he returns to one of his earliest inspirations. If the format isn’t as distinctive as his work with John Etheridge’s graceful, Grappelli-influenced band, Sweet Chorus, the rhythm section of John Horler, Alec Dankworth and Allan Ganley hit cruising speed with the minimum of exertion on Exactly Like You and Crazy Rhythm. Garrick’s soloing is full of joie de vivre. The grand old man would have been impressed.
