JACK DeSALVO – guitar (Godin Multiac ACS SA classical)
JOEL SHAPIRA – guitar (1948 Gibson L-12)
“In early January 2013 I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to record with an individual who has impacted my musical journey tremendously. The music within was captured in one brief afternoon session, and is the culmination of a relationship with my very gifted and dear friend, Jack DeSalvo.” – Joel Shapira
This stellar set of duos, that includes music by Wayne Shorter, Ralph Towner and Jack DeSalvo as well as Just Friends and two open pieces, sheds light on the rather lofty state of jazz guitar these days.
