These mandolin/guitar duets are a crash course in how swing music should be played. Expertly recorded in Jethro's living room at the end of his life, Jethro demonstrates complete mastery of his instrument, playing with elegance and grace. Don Stiernberg's rhythm guitar is superb, and worthy of study by any aspiring swing guitarist. This is a disk that will sound as good twenty years from now as it does today. Buy "Swing Low, Sweet Mandolin" as well--more tracks from the same sessions.

Now that Jethro has shuffled off the old mortal coil, this is definately some of the sweetest mandolin playing this side of heaven. I grew up listening to Homer & Jethro and hearing this other side of Mr. Burns when he played with Steve Goodman and on these discs that D. Grisman was so kind to release, makes the humor all the more delicious.

What can I say that probably hasn't been said. I have followed Jethro career for the last 50 years and he is just amazing. Like prior CD's of Jethro, I like to listen through once and then just play parts of the CD to capture and absorb the full flavor of his music.Like prior CD's this is exceptionally clean of background and lets you listen comfortably. If I had any wants to this and other Jethro CD's would have been some really long sets. What's really exciting to see is a good start to the Homer & Jethro catalog being released 30 plus years later as a compilation set. This is a good start to see how Jethro style delveloped with Homer.

I am a big fan of Homer and Jethro. I liked the way jethro played the mandolin in a comedic style. There really was no comedy on thgis CD.
