Violinist Joe Venuti – Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame

Violinist Joe Venuti

Violinist Joe Venuti

(1902-1978)

Like many early jazz greats, violinist Joe Venuti was classically trained, but his brilliant timing and ability to perform electrifying violin solos set him apart from the crowd. On top of being naturally gifted, he devised a technique that allowed him to play four-note chords.

Joe Venuti’s impressive musical abilities placed him in high demand in New York City, where he often worked with childhood friend and guitar virtuoso, Eddie Lang. Together they astounded musicians and fans by blazing the trail for how jazz was to be played on their respective instruments. Joe Venuti performed brilliantly for more than fifty years, and remained active until his death in 1978.
