Billet-Deux - Deux


I agree with previous reviews of this cd. It is one of the best jazz releases of 2008. Even though I'm listening in 2009. It's a distinctly guitar-drive jazz album, almost classical in orientation.

4 on 6

Be-Bop

Goodbye Porkpie Hat

Sarita

Do You Know What It Means (to Miss New Orleans)

Joy Spring

Anouman

Fishwife Blues

Pent-Up House

Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise

Ordinary Girl

Tu Vuo Fa L’Americano

Those are the stars, along with

Troy Chapman - guitar
James Hinkley - cello
Keith Bowers - guitar
Michael Yocco - bass
Roget Bennett - drums

Each contains "the sophistication and coolness of modern jazz" and they are right to call themselves such.
