Stephane Grappelli fans

I have a box set called "The Original Jazz Master Series Vol. 2" which has a version of the famous swing song "It don't mean a thing if you aint got that swing" by Stephane Grappelli & Barney Kessel. Does anyone know what album this came from?

Also, what are your favorite Stephane Grappelli recordings.
Anyone paticuraly impressed with the SACD releases?
I just bought the CD "Hot Dawg" with Dave Grisman. Grappelli played a number of cuts on it, which I didn't know at the time. I put it on, and on cut 3 I suddenly thought, "Boy, whoever that is sure sounds like Stephane Grappelli!" And sure enough, it was.

One of my favourites is "Vintage 1981", a Concord release that's been reissued on CD. "Paper Moon" from that record is classic Grappelli.
it is on a album called "limehouse blues"
on the black lion label # bl-173. great album
Excellent, Thankyou Prhifi.

I'm a huge Grisman fan so I look forward to hearing that also.
There is a great Mosaic Records box set of the complete Swing/HMV recordings of the Quintet of the Hot Club of France. Django Reinhardt appears on all the recordings, and Stephane Grappelli appears on most of them. The recordings are low-fi in that they were all recorded in Paris in the late '30s and throughout the '40s. This is important music, however, so it is a very worthwhile addition to a jazz collection.

Some other great - and more modern - Stephane Grappelli recordings are "Young Django," a 1979 Verve recording in which Grappelli is joined by guitarists Larry Coryell and Philip Catherine along with bassist Niels Pedersen and "Oscar Peterson Featuring Stephane Grappelli," a 1973 Prestige recording in which Peterson and Grappelli are joined by Niels Pedersen on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums.
