Album Review

On this superb CD, Jimmy Bruno picks up where Joe Pass left off in playing unaccompanied solo guitar. Without overdubbing or using a tapping technique, Bruno plays melody lines, harmonies and bass patterns, often simultaneously. His interpretations of nine standards and two originals are concise, melodic and purposeful, moving forward and developing to logical conclusions. Bruno's technique does not overwhelm the songs yet it permits him to express himself at a high level, both technically and creatively. Jimmy Bruno is usually heard in groups, making this solo outing a special event. Highly recommended.

One of the finest jazz guitarists in Philadelphia, Jimmy Bruno is a passionate hard bopper who loves to swing aggressively but can be a very sensitive ballad player when he puts his mind to it. The Italian-American was raised in South Philly, where he fell in love with jazz as a kid and took up the guitar at the age of seven. Growing up, he was influenced by such bop guitar greats as Joe Pass, Kenny Burrell, Barney Kessel and Jimmy Raney but also admired the pre-bop work of Eddie Lang, Charlie Christian...
