This is the 1985 recording featuring the inaugural pairing of two phenomenal jazz guitarists, Ed Bickert and Lorne Lofsky, performing together in a quartet setting with Neil Swainson (bass) and Jerry Fuller (drums). Originally released on vinyl (Unisson DDA-1002), this long out-of-print session has now been re-mastered for digital release in 2022 by Cornerstone Records Inc.
The program features nine carefully chosen tunes: seven jazz ‘standards’, one composition by bassist Neil Swainson, plus another by Steve Swallow. With Ed Bickert and Jerry Fuller no longer with us, this release provides a great opportunity to hear this wonderful quartet at its peak.
