Mark O’Connor’s Hot Swing
November 16, 2014
An evening of acoustic string jazz featuring Grammy Award-winning Mark O’Connor. O'Connor's jazz performances and compositions pay tribute to his friend and mentor; the legendary French jazz master Stéphane Grappelli. While performing a number of tunes closely associated with Grappelli, O'Connor's albums and live performances extend the repertoire with O'Connor's original compositions. Hot Swing continues to celebrate acoustic string jazz in new and exciting ways.
Violinist/composer/fiddler Mark O'Connor is widely recognized as one of the most gifted contemporary composers, regularly collaborating with Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer and jazz greats.
"No matter what he plays, when you're listening to O'Connor, you know you're listening to genius." —THE SEATTLE TIMES
