Using grace notes with swing?

I'm transcribing a piece for jazz trio, but I have run across a slight problem. The piece is in swing time, with a 67% eighth note ratio. If I add an acciaccatura (or any other grace note that comes before the beat, as far as I can tell) onto an off-beat note, the grace note is played far too early. It's almost as if it's playing a grace note for the straight eighth, rather than the swing eighth. The grace note works fine if it's on the on-beat. Can anyone give me some advice for how to fix this?

Rondo giocoso for violin and orchestra

This is a very Paganini-inspired piece which I wrote, learned and eventually performed as my senior solo at my last high school orchestra concert. I used many Paganini-esque idioms like a B theme in parallel tenths and a lyrical middle section with extensive use of harmonics. But I also injected some Tchaikovsky at the end to deliver maximum energy!

Use the custom audio (don't have Pro yet so I can't set it as the default).

I wrote my own "senior solo" for my last orchestra concert

I'm still really proud of myself for having pulled this off. I composed, learned and then performed an original composition as my HS senior solo! I was heavily inspired by Paganini and so endeavored to make my part as difficult as possible. I copied a lot of Paganini-esque idioms like a B theme in parallel tenths, and a lyrical middle section with extensive harmonics use. But I took my inspiration for the coda from Tchaikovsky to get maximum energy at the very end!

When listening, use the custom audio. (Don't have Pro yet so I can't set it as the default.)
