Joe Pass is considered among the greatest jazz guitarists of the 20th century; his masterful melodic counterpoint and quicksilver improvisational style flow throughout this classic 1970 release. Deftly accompanied by German bass virtuoso Eberhard Weber and English drummer Kenny Clare, the music runs the gamut, including a meditative Antônio Carlos Jobim bossa nova, a lusciously relaxed version of the jazz standard Stompin’ At The Savoy, a blues-drenched rendition of the Bobby Gentry pop classic Ode to Billy Joeand a display of dynamically controlled guitar pyrotechnics on the exhilarating I Love You.
“Joe Pass looks like somebody’s uncle and plays guitar like nobody’s business.”
