ju·bi·la·tion - n. 1. - The act of rejoicing. - The condition or feeling of being jubilant. 2. - A celebration or other expression of joy. "Jubilee" by guitarists Harry Manx and Kevin Breit feels like no blues record I have ever listened to. In fact, it hardly feels bluesy at all. While there are blues inspired titles like "Diving Duck Blues" and "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues" and standard blues chord progressions are present, the songs on this CD ring with the passion and joy two inspired guitarists feeding off each other's positive energies. There is a simplicity of sound thanks to the production of David Travers Smith that allows the interaction of Manx and Breit to really shine through. They play as though they can find beauty from every note and the results are stunning. The overall tone of the CD is bright and refreshing without being overly brash. There is a downtempo quality yet the songs still remain lively and spirited. Imagine the kind of music one might listen to at a sunny, summer folk festival or while sipping cappucino in a coffee bar. This is the perfect recording to spin while relaxing on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
