This week we have new music from Mack Ave Records, the critically acclaimed jazz label. The album, Duets, features Kevin Eubanks and Stanley Jordan on guitars. These legendary players come together for an inspired recording in hi-res audio.
In celebration, we’ve featured a number of great guitarists for this weekend’s highlights. From New Age great, Alex de Grassi, to Jason McGuire playing original music in a flamenco style you’re sure to find something intriguing. Often overlooked are the guitarists accompanying singer songwriters. We’ve included some of our favorite accompanists.
Mark your calendars for the Los Angeles Audio Show. We’ll be there with artists like Fiona Joy, Jenna Mammina, Derek Jones, Valerie Joyce, Meghan Andrews, Marco Ferrero, Judi Jaeger and Bob Reid. Watch for upcoming announcements of our activities.
Enjoy Your Music!
Kevin Eubanks & Stanley Jordan – Duets
Two greats of jazz guitar playing – Kevin Eubanks and Stanley Jordan – have come together to record this unique album of original compositions and interesting covers of familiar songs. “Summertime” takes on a new twist in a soft ballad manner. “Blue In Green” (the Miles Davis / Bill Evans song from Kind of Blue) is a bluesy version with piano and electric guitar. Definitely a late night album.
You might remember Kevin as the Musical Director of the Tonight Show band with Jay Leno. Kevin recorded for GRP and Blue Note Records and played with Art Blakey, Roy Haynes and Sam Rivers to name a few.
The album was recorded in 176.4 PCM for Mack Ave Records. We have converted to other formats of DSD, WAV and FLAC for your convenience.
