Joe Pass & Herb Ellis - Jazz/Concord

A studio recording by the same band that recorded the live Seven Come Eleven, this recording finds Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, and Jake Hanna doing a few covers and reworking some standards into new pieces ; "Worksong" becomes "Good News Blues", "Sweet Georgia Brown" becomes "Happiness is the Concord Jazz Festival" - well, it *was* recorded before their performance at the Concord Jazz Festival. Ellis and Pass support each other brilliantly ; and their soloing is off the register. Their recording of "Georgia" is the best I've ever heard — and that's saying something because I'm from Georgia where the Ray Charles' version is sacred. Excellent recording and an invaluable addition to all jazz guitar collections.
