Biography

The French violinist Warlop had a short but varied career, working with such noted pop singers as Maurice Chevalier and Germaine Sablon (1934-1935), and with such jazz greats as violinist Stephane Grappelli and guitarist Django Reinhardt (1934-1937). Warlop also worked with the group Jazz du Poste Parisien, accordionist Louis Richardet, and in a group with fellow violinists Grappelli and Eddie South (in 1937). He played in a duo with the expatriate American pianist Garland Wilson (1938), and worked with other American musicians visiting Paris, including most notably tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins. Warlop played in the orchestra of saxophonist Raymond Lergrand (father of composer Michel Lergrand) in the early '40s and led a string septet (1941-1943). In 1942 he conducted the Paris Symphony Orchestra in a performance of his composition "Noel du Prisonnier." Warlop died in 1947 at age 36. ~ Chris Kelsey
