    It's obvious that this CD was marketed to the classical crowd first by its packaging and use of CBS rather than the Columbia label. Don't let that fool you; this is a jazz session with the renowned classical cellist Yo-Yo Ma joining the fun. The emphasis is on the music of Cole Porter, which was very familiar ground to Grappelli long before the session took place. The sparkling performances of the violinist throughout the date should be no surprise. The cellist seems to be gradually getting his feet wet on the opening title track, but becomes more prominent on "Easy to Love" and cuts loose on "I Concentrate On You." Grappelli, guitarist Marc Fosset and bassist Jon Burr go it alone on the quick run through "Just One of Those Things." Pianist Roger Kellaway and drummer Daniel Humair also add solid rhythm support, though they mostly stay out of the solo spotlight. Overall, it's a fun session worth picking up. ~ Ken Dryden
