This award-winning Dutch jazz violinist is seen by many as the inheritor of jazz violin legend Stéphane Grappelli’s crown. Here, his trio, now in their 10th year, bring their compelling interplay to Grappelli’s high-energy gypsy swing and jazzed-up classical tunes. This is part of the Village Ventures programme supported by Nottinghamshire County Council.
Classically trained at the Amsterdam Conservatoire, taught to improvise by fiery gypsy jazz legends such as The Rosenberg Trio and Fapy Lafertin, Dutch jazz violinist Tim Kliphuis combines dazzling perfection and complete musical freedom like no-one else in the world. He is the foremost ambassador for the music of Stéphane Grappelli and for the enduringly distinctive gypsy swing style that Grappelli invented with his Hot Club de France partner Django Reinhardt.
In this trio show he reminisces about his inspirational meeting with the French jazz violin maestro and his experiences with the European guitar gypsies, and plays an array of beautiful and uplifting songs from the Parisian left bank, including little-known gems composed by Grappelli himself.
