Joe Pass - Virtuoso #2

Virtuoso #2, the second of Joe Pass' solo guitar albums for Pablo, finds the remarkable Pass exploring more recent standards than one might expect. In addition to a few warhorses, there is also "Feelings" (which he somehow manages to make tolerable), "If," two Chick Corea songs ("Five Hundred Miles High" and "Windows") and even "Giant Steps." Pass' mastery of the guitar is obvious throughout this enjoyable set.

I've got #1 and #4 so I'm ecstatic to get #2 of the Joe Pass Virtuoso series. If you ever get #3 I'm sure many, including me, would snap it up. Regardless, I'm very happy to get this. Thank you very much Mel!
