Echoes of France: violin & guitar duo

Inspired by the duet recordings of jazz legends Stéphane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt, Echoes of France recreate the elegance and clarity of that unforgettable pairing of violin and guitar. AC Wood joins Fenner Curtis for acoustic and stirring renditions of timeless melodies in the style of those most influential members of the Quintette du Hot Club de France.

LISTEN

Enjoy these 12 live acoustic tracks, recorded on authentic vintage hardware. Listen or buy online.

Inspired by the duet recordings of jazz legends Stéphane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt, these are our own duet arrangements for violin and guitar: ranging from well known Cole Porter and Duke Ellington tunes to rarely recorded compositions by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli.

This album is the result of a live recording session with an authentic 1930s Siemens SM3 ribbon mic. No overdubs, no mixing, no editing, no plugins, no special effects – just good music!

The Siemens was lovingly restored by Martin Mitchell – you can find out more about his many microphones on his blog: Martin Mitchell’s Microphones >
