On October 7, 1978 mandolinist David Grisman and legendary violinist Stephane Grappelli met at 1750 Arch Street Studios in Berkeley, California to record several tunes for David's third solo recording project. Accompanying them were guitarist Tony Rice and mandolinist Mike Marshall, both members of the David Grisman Quintet, and the celebrated jazz bassist Eddie Gomez.
Three pieces were recorded that day, two Grisman originals, "Dawg Patch" and "16/16" and a new arrangement of the Reinhardt-Grappelli classic, "Minor Swing." This collection includes all the previously unreleased takes from this historic session. The playing was inspired and this unique musical friendship would continue until Stephane's death in 1997.
