I chose his style because it spoke to me. He was too far ahead of his time. He was something else. Django is still one of my main influences, I think, for lyricism. He can make me cry when I hear him.

Organ begins to play Interview: Announcer: Could you tell me Mr Reinhardt, what has compelled you to write this mass? DR: All the gypsies in the entire world have made use of foreign masses for many centuries.
I have written this mass to be interpreted by choir and organ. A: And in what surroundings do you isolate yourself in order to write — it's not a question of surroundings. For you certainly cannot do it after a jazz concert? DR: I prefer to write in the evening very late or in the morning in my bed.
A: And did you notate the music? DR: No, it's not I who notates the music. I dictate it to him. A: And is today the first recital of your mass? DR: It is an extract of my mass. I particularly don't know the ending. It's the first time I have heard the composition on the organ. A: Certainly you know, Mr Reinhardt, that in the world and particularly in France, it is said that you are the king of the gypsies.
Is that accurate? DR: No, no, no, don't think that. But it might come to pass, perhaps one day. I am very loved by them, and I thank them by offering to them this mass. Organ continues to play.

At the age of 15, Grappelli began busking full-time to support himself. He played there for six hours daily over a two-year period.
Here he was introduced to jazz. In , Grappelli was a member of the orchestra at the Ambassador Hotel while bandleader Paul Whiteman and jazz violinist Joe Venuti were performing there. Jazz violinists were rare, and though Venuti played mainly commercial jazz themes and seldom improvised, Grappelli was struck by his bowing when he played " Dinah ".
Grappelli lived with Michel Warlop , a classically trained violinist. Warlop admired Grappelli's jazz-inspired playing, while Grappelli envied Warlop's income. He was involved in an automobile accident that resulted in several deaths, and fled to South America to avoid arrest. While playing with this band, Grappelli met gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt in Looking for a violinist interested in jazz, he invited Grappelli to play with him in his caravan.
Although the two played for hours that afternoon,  their commitments to their respective bands prevented them from pursuing a career together. In they met again at Claridge's in London, England, and began a musical partnership. Hall entertained nightly, and hired the Quintette as one of the house bands. He took back the Italian spelling of his last name, he said, to keep people from pronouncing his surname "Grappell-eye".
