CD Reviews

This archival recording is full of wit, charm, and economy.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This archival collection of guitar recordings is full of wit, charm, and economy of playing for the listener who can get past the 'old timey' feel. There is nary a clunker in this album. Aspiring jazz guitarists will find that these songs warrant further study and provide excellent transciption potential. The duets sound like a couple of old friends having a very interesting conversation. Listen to these tunes as often as possible; you'll hear something new each time."
A gem

"I defy anyone to resist the charm and energy of this album.
It was all downhill after these guys.
What a great compilation."
Early jazz guitar legends...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD put out by the Yazoo label(surprisingly a US label) Usually we have to get this type of CD from a European label. This CD of mostly jazz guitar duets is great such jazz legends as Eddie Lang and Lonnie Johnson appear on several tracks as well as lesser known greats like Dick McDanough(who would later led his own big band, which included sideman bass sax legend Adrian Rollini). Every track is a gem, this is the best way to get introduced to the best jazz guitarists of the 30's, after you've already bought every Django Reinhart Cd there is. Recomended."
