Prior to their teaming up as a duo, Jet had two solo hits, Besame mucho just missed the UK top twenty. Man with the golden arm did better, just missing the UK top ten. At that point, Jet teamed up with Tony. Jet (the guitarist) and Tony (the drummer) had three huge instrumental UK hits together in 1963 - Diamonds (number one), Scarlett O' Hara (number two to the Beatles) and Applejack (number four) - although Diamonds is the only one that most people remember (assuming they remember Jet and Tony at all).
Frank Peter Zimmermann offers a fresh and exciting view of the Violin Concerto, less sentimental than some, with swift tempos and a dazzlingly swift finale. He phrasing is sometimes a touch angular, particularly in the first movement, and this usually works well, putting an arresting slant on tunes we feel we've heard a million times before. Only the very opening misfires a bit: yes, it's marked mezzo-forte, but it's also marked "dolce ed espressivo", and Zimmermann's somewhat wiry tone is neither.
