Joe Venuti was the first and greatest jazz violinist. In 1954 an impromptu recording session in duet with guitarist Tony Romano produced, in the words of respected jazz critic Leonard Feather, "music of the highest and purest order." British Jazz violinist and teacher Aidan Massey has meticulously transcribed Venuti's breathtaking solos from this session, the CD of which is also included with this volume. Paul Anastasio who studied with Venuti says this represents Joe's "best recorded work" and that Massey "has done a terrific job of writing spot-on, highly accurate transcriptions." The book contains an introduction by Richard Niles Romano with a brief biography of his father Tony Romano and Venuti and the circumstances surrounding this rare historic recording. The book contains endorsements from eminent jazz stars Pat Metheny, Bob James, Martin Taylor and violinist/leader of the London Session Orchestra, Gavyn Wright.
