Harry Volpe Plays Django Live


Doing a little research and found this video done in the mid-'80's. Keep in mind Harry is also in his mid-80's and doing an amazing job. Dig the little brush and drum action the bassist has going on -- never seen that before.

Also, a three part audio interview (total 30 minutes) where he talks about his life. No direct mention of Gretsches, but his pupils included Sal Salvador, Al Caiola, Johnny Smith and briefly, Joe Pass.

Part 1

Part 2 (with the Django story),
