CD Reviews

Time to acknowledge the man's talent.
A.D. Ticoalu | Chicago, IL | 03/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As stated in a review by IAJRC (International Association of Jazz Record Collectors): "Remember that album by Grappelli and Menuhin? Grappelli got the Jazz, Menuhin got the sound. In Johnny Frigo's case, he got both." He's the second oldest living Jazz violinist in this country and the world, and that's a fact. However, that's nothing compared to the fact he has two things that should put him on the top of his field: great sound and Swing. These made John unique and it's been too long for him not to be considered as a national treasure of this country. Being a personal friend of John made me decide not to give any rate at all, for it might be considered as a biased rating. But I have to say that if you call yourself a Jazz fan, especially Jazz violin than you should get this album. You won't be sorry at all for spending some 15 bucks for this disc. By the way, I know there's five stars attached to this comment. The thing is Amazon won't allow me to leave the rate field blank. I got to put something so I thought 5 would do. But keep in your mind that there's nothing personal here, just a matter of technicality. If you live in Chicago area or anywhere close to Chicago, try your best to catch him play live in any clubs. Don't mind what all the stuff Howard Reich's been writing about this man, just go and watch this man's talent."
