O’s Notes: If you like jazz guitar, get ready for a treat. This live Concord Jazz concert during the summer of 1973 brought together two outstanding guitarists in Pass and Ellis. They touch on all elements at varied tempos from Pass’s “Prelude To A Kiss” to the blazing “Seven Come Eleven”. The notes are well articulated and crisp. We must mention the both Jake Hanna (d) and Ray Brown (b) who don’t miss a beat at all. The introduction refers to this brilliant guitar interplay. They are spot on!
