Product Description

Review

How can just two guys make so much music? As you listen to the variety and range and richness of the music produced here by Howard Alden and Ken Peplowski, you are likely to ask yourself the same question. The answer is it's easy if you have the technical wherewithal, quick wits, musical intelligence and almost telepathic rapport these guys bring to bear when it's just the two of them playing together. They have such a long history that they have a common language and vocabulary that come together very quickly to create a CD filled with dazzling interplay. --Ross Firestone, author of the award-winning Swing,Swing,Swing: The Life and Times of Benny Goodman.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gem. April 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Duets are the jazz equivalent of a trapeze act without a safety net, especially when they are between a horn player and guitarist. Sans bass, sans drums there is a danger that the texture will seem thin. Even the great Joe Pass was reduced to routine plinking and plonking when he made such a record with tenor player Zoot Sims.
But the guitarist Howard Alden and the tenor saxophonist/ clarinettist Ken Peplowski surmount that problem with ease on this lovely recording.
It's been a long time since these two virtuosi recorded together, and to hear them join forces on a generous helping of duets is a rare treat.
This is a very special, fluid listening experience.
They know the value of restraint. Their series of duets is a gem, generating a true sense of intimacy and never lapsing into predictable, jazz-by-numbers exchanges.
The track listing is as diverse as anyone who has heard them live would expect.
Peplowski has seldom sounded more airy and buoyant; even more impressive is the way that Alden constantly shifts from rhythmic strumming, through counter-lines, floating chords and unison passages.
Together Alden and Peplowski seem to somersault through musical space, no safety net required.
Both men may be rooted in swing, but their tastes range as far afield as Bud Powell's sprightly "Tempus Fugit" and the gentler contours of Bill Evans's "Very Early".
Peplowski's clarinet timbre is unfailingly warm and dark; when he switches to tenor sax, as on "Sammy Cahn" and Jule Styne's "The Things We Did Last Summer", he conjures up memories of that arch romantic.
My favourite tracks: "Very Early" and "Panama".
