Born in 1956, Titi Winterstein didn't waste too much time before he picked up his 1st violin, and by the age of fifteen was a fully swinging member of Hansche Weiss's Gypsy swing quintett
While all 6 of the CD's available (two of which are compilations) are simply stunning, the Titi Winterstein Quintett's live 1987 CD on Boulevard (Live Mit Vanessa & Sorba), is postively one of the greatest albums of all time! Featuring guest appearances from Vanessa Merstein & Sorba Kwiatowski (two Eastern European Gypsy singers), this album offers warmth, virtuosity & amazing energy. From dazzling break-neck gypsy-swing, to traditional gypsy tunes, to Musette, to Bossa, this album is a joy from first to last note.
I believe another compilation has recently become available: it's called Startracks, and I have yet to purchase a copy.
