LIVE: Jonathan Russell with the Doc Scanlon Trio @ the Van Dyck, 7/18

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009


On Saturday, July 18, the newly remodeled and re-opened Van Dyck in Schenectady presented jazz violinist Jonathan Russell, a 14-year-old musical prodigy who first began playing at the age of three.

Performing with the Doc Scanlon Trio, Russell embodied the spirit, style and tone of the late Stephane Grappelli, who co-founded the influential Quintet of the Hot Club of France along with legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt in the 1930s.
