Overview

On the second of two volumes, veteran swing violinist Claude Williams (81 at the time of this live recording) proves that he is still in top form. The repertoire is primarily swing standards and (with the assistance of guitarist James Chirillo, pianist Ron Mathews, bassist Al McKibbon and either Akira Tana or Grady Tate on drums), Williams is easily the main star of this swinging set. His violin solos are excellent (a little rougher in tone but near the level of a Stephane Grappelli) while his occasional vocals show plenty of personality. This is fine music that helps to put the focus on a much neglected swing stylist.
