CD Reviews

A Really Nice Sounding Guitar Album......
Robert J. Ament | Ballwin, MO United States | 08/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"featuring two artists whose styles complement each other very well!

Remo Palmier, a.k.a. Palmieri, is not exactly a familiar name...but could well have been! He played in the early 40's with the likes of Red Norvo, Dizzy Gillespie, Charley Parker and Coleman Hawkins, dropping out of club work and becoming a studio musician because of health problems. The two guitarists have a similar sound but Ellis has a little southwestern twang to his. Palmier can be heard noticeably on any Latin tinged solo while Ellis reverts more to a direct four.

The program is a varied one ranging from a minor blues on the title tune, standards, a couple featuring a Latin beat and a couple of familiar jazz tunes, "Walkin'" and "Groove Merchant". The set showcases their excellent talents as guitarists as well as the supporting rhythm section, bassist George Duvivier and drummer Ron Traxler.

This album was followed up by one named simply "Remo Palmier" which has never been re-released on cd.

Anyone who enjoys good guitar will appreciate this album. There are a good variety of tempos in the program which would mainly be described as relaxing or a good background for a small social gathering."
