4 stars Considering the almost 70-year old violin veteran, this is a fresh and contemporary sounding effort, especially the two last fusion tracks. Music is more accessible than on the last 2-3 previous jazz album's and the violin duo produces a couple of virtuoso nad warmly sounding tracks. "Violin Summit No.2" is the peak of the album with plenty of instrumental wizardry, Mahavishnu-esque guitar, excellent drumming and electric piano. "Valerie" has the typical warm Grapelli tone while "Bowing" is a distinct European jazz tune. "Golden green" compensates loud music by more acoustic sounds that are heaven for ears with viola/violin equilibristics. Recommended for all curious fans of both violin players.
