Overview

The combination of guitarist Howard Alden and bassist Jack Lesberg works quite well on this intriguing set. The duo performs some spontaneous versions of standards, while other obscure works are fully arranged. The music is mostly swing but also occasionally looks toward the 1920s. Highlights include Duke Ellington's "Dancers in Love," George Van Eps' "I Wrote It for Joe," Stuff Smith's "Test Pilot," "Black Beauty," and a pair of Alden guitar solos: Carl Kress' "Love Song" and John Smith's "Slow Burning." This lesser-known Howard Alden release is well worth searching for.
