New interview out now with John Etheridge, Stephane Grappellis guitarist during the late 70s-early 80s. John is a great guy and is a natural story teller. I really enjoyed the hour we spent chatting about Grappelli, 'gypsy jazz' and music in general.
If you like what you hear, please subscribe to me on itunes, youtube and everywhere else. I occasionally put up new video lessons for beginner jazz violinists, videos of interviews and videos of my gigs on youtube so dont miss out on that.
Also, send me an email with your thoughts on the podcasts and the topics we discuss and I may read some of them out on the show.

Ithaca Strings IS Eric Aceto, a luthier, violinist and producer of the ISI dual pickup system. This system is by far the best and most honest sounding violin pickup system on the market right now! It blends an Electret microphone with a bridge pickup, both attaching to a stereo jack out under the chin rest. This means you get the solid sound of the pick up blended with the sweeter sound of the Electret mic without heavy cables attached to your instrument. Eric also makes amazing instruments and has made both pickups and violins for Jean Luc Ponty, Zach Brock, Matt Glaser and many other amazing musicians.
