About

From Wikipedia:

Nigel Kennedy (born 28 December 1956) is an English violinist and violist. He made his early career in the classical field, and has more recently performed in jazz, klezmer and other music genres.

Nigel Kennedy played violin on Paul McCartney’s 1987 “Once Upon Along Ago” song.

Paul had heard me on a record I made playing Duke Ellington and Bartok. Apparently he asked George Martin if I was available …It was great fun to do. Paul’s contribution to music has been phenomenal, but he’s still got the appetite… It’s just art for art’s sake.

Nigel Kennedy, about his contribution to “Once Upon Along Ago”, from Club Sandwich N°46, Winter 1987

It was quite laugh. We recorded at Abbey Road and I’d just been in there the day before doing some concerto with Andre Previn… With Previn, we already knew what we were going to do when we went in there. But with McCartney he just said ‘Play’ and it was up to me to lock into his personality and what he was saying
