Format: Audio CD
this CD is an artistic statement of the highest order. Ed Bickert is a master of the jazz guitar and has been a mainstay of the Toronto jazz scene for many years. he is one of the best kept secrets in the history of the genre and this CD with Lorne Lofsky reflects Ed's playing at its best. Lorne is of a younger generation of course but these tracks reflect the true timelessness of great music. these two guys swing in the finest jazz tradition. they have soul, taste and incredible technique. they are both featured on this CD with the able assistance of a great rythym section in a wide variety of styles ranging from latin to an outstanding rendition of Wes Montgomery's "Twisted Blues". these guys got game and this CD is a great start for those unfamiliar with these outstanding players. highly recomended!

It isn't very often that you get the opportunity to hear two of the greats of guitar playing together. Bickert and Lofsky's individual styles blend together beautifully proving that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

On this CD Ed does something he had never done before. He takes another Canadian under his wing & makes this CD.

The quiet man of Toronto's jazz scene finds himself teamed with a younger Canadian acolyte, Lorne Lofsky, on another of those Concord Jazz mainstream guitar discs that go down like honey butter. Lofsky is no clone, for his tone is brighter and his attack is sharper than the ultra-mellow Bickert, but they speak a similar sophisticated language and are thus totally compatible. They do a golden-hued, fleet-fingered rendition of Wes Montgomery's "Twisted Blues," the two guitars conversing animatedly on a refined plane. The nicely swinging "Ecaroh" and "Ah-Leu Cha" and the bossa-flavored "Estate" (Lofsky plays acoustic on the latter) are also standouts. Fellow Torontans Neil Swainson (bass) and Jerry Fuller (drums) complement Bickert and Lofsky deftly and seamlessly; "Namely You" dispenses with the rhythm section entirely as the two guitarists carry on without a hitch, I highly recommend it.

This 1989 recording is Bickert's best for Concord since his very first session for the label back in 1983 (that one a real humdinger with Scott Hamilton and Warren Vache added--and not on CD yet, to my knowledge--a real shame). The two-guitar front line of Bickert and Lofsky works very well, each man complimenting the other perfectly. "Twisted blues" and Bird's "Ah-leu-cha" are particularly fine. Worth getting.

This is a lovely album. Both Lorne Lofsky and Ed Bickert are great on their own but the duets bring more out of each of them. Twisted Blues is an excellent example of this. A different version of Charlie Parker's Ah-Leu-Cha is present here very entertaining.
