Stéphane Grappelli & Yehudi Menuhin - Laura

We start off a Sunday with a very pleasant track indeed. The French violinist Stéphane Grappelli and his Russian Jewish American collaborator, violinist Yehudi Menuhin, released several albums together, and one of their shining moments is "Laura". Originally a song written på David Raksin with lyrics by Johnny Mercer for the 1944 movie of the same name, it has been recorded by hundreds of artists. Among a lot of beautiful versions (Chet Baker, Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, Charlie Parker, etc.), Grappelli and Yehudin's is one of the stand-outs, a truly wonderful piece of music. Please enjoy.
