Album Review

Here is a second brace of solo Pass tracks from the sessions that have already yielded Songs for Ellen. The ambience is ruminative and extremely intimate; the menu consists entirely of much-explored standards at mostly unrelieved slow tempos. Several notes are not cleanly struck, but the musical imagination that previously yielded several solo recordings is still very much in gear, albeit a very subtle gear. A general bit of advice: it is better to listen to this album in small doses (a few tracks at a time), try to mentally filter out the very closely recorded mechanical noises the fingers make on the guitar, and not expect anything startling to leap out at you. Better yet, try some of Pass' earlier solo albums (such as the Virtuoso series, also on Pablo) before embarking upon this. ~ Richard S. Ginell, Rovi

Customer Reviews

The feel supercedes the technical

This collection of songs feel so intimate that you can close your eyes and feel Joe Pass right in front of you!! Listen to EVERY song to set an ambiance of music, candles, and cognac or wine.....on a cold winter's night or a night when you're getting caressed by a summer breeze...and this music!!!

A True Review!

Absolutly stunning talent and exceptional skill is shown in this and several albums of Joe pass but this album truly does stand out! These amazing melodies and blues riffs capture the senses and allow the listener to see the truest and deepest dephs of blues. I have read the review Ginell or Itunes' chosen crtic I think that the critic must not really have any background in the blues genre. This album can be listened to for hours and you will only understand a deeper love and appreciation for this master muscian's work. The Twists and turns of each song have begging for more. Enjoy this artist and buy as much of his music as you can.

A Guitarist's Guitarist

You can actually hear his breaths marking time, so intimate, as if you we there listening to him live. As a 30 year veteran of the guitar, I unashamedly say this is one of my favorites of all time! The phrasing, the nuance, the creativity, the ideas that just seem to flow unimpeded, Joe Pass was true genius!

Biography

Born: January 13, 1929 in New Brunswick, NJ

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

Joe Pass did the near-impossible. He was able to play up-tempo versions of bop tunes such as "Cherokee" and "How High the Moon" unaccompanied on the guitar. Unlike Stanley Jordan, Pass used conventional (but superb) technique, and his Virtuoso series on Pablo still sounds remarkable decades later. Joe Pass had a false start in his career. He played in a few swing bands (including Tony Pastor's) before graduating from high school, and was with Charlie Barnet for a time in 1947. But after serving...
