Two Guitars are "Bending Time" On Duo EP
There's one original; the rest are covers. And what hit me about those are the very nicely turned arrangments of what are some familiar songs: "Black Magic Woman," "Only Living Boy in New York," Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed," the Zombies "She's Not There," and last but hardly least a nifty version of the Left Banke-Mike Brown "Walk Away Renee."
This is not going to win a Grammy (and what that means is precisely nothing much) but it is a most pleasant way to spend twenty-five minutes. It isn't jazz so much as a kind of jamming rock-acoustic thing. But hey, I found it a refreshing change to my usual.
