Joe Venuti - Joe In Chicago, 1978

Violinist Joe Venuti is joined by an all-star cast of musicians on this fabulous album, including his partners in the Four Giant’s of Swing: Jethro Burns, mandolin; Curley Chalker, steel guitar, and Eldon Shamblin, guitar. Also joining Venuti are Mike Dowling, guitar; Steve Goodman, acoustic guitar; Jim Tullio, bass and others.

Wiki link on this great jazz violinist, considered by many the father of jazz violin.

Good to see your post about Joe Venuti's last CD and the participation of Steve Goodman. He often doesn't get his due. You might be interested in my 800-page biography, "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music." The book contains a lengthy and detailed anecdote about Goodman's participation in the recording session.

You can find out more at my Internet site (below). Amazingly, the book's first printing sold out in just eight months, all 5,000 copies, and a second printing of 5,000 is available now. The second printing includes hundreds of little updates and additions, including 30 more photos for a total of 575. It just won a 2008 IPPY (Independent Publishers Association) silver medal for biography. To order a second-printing copy, see the "online store" page of my site. Just trying to spread word about the book. Feel free to do the same!
