Joe Venuti and Bobby Maxwell • A Thousand and One Strings

In this series titled "One Thousand and One Strings" we present Venuti at his outstanding best. These wide-range and high fidelity recordings flawlessly present a collection of Venuti's favorite musical selections. Bobby Maxwell trained particularly in harmony, composition, counterpoint and - fortunately for music-lovers - the harp. Because Bobby Maxwell is unquestionably the greatest swing harpist in the world. ~ from liner notes

  1. But how can an harpist do a slide (as at 1:54 on "September Song") ???
    Some beautiful moments on this album, and the sound of the harp of Maxwell and his authority playing it is unmatched. We are definitely in "Dreamland" ;)

    Thank you very much Jorge for sharing this one!
