Gary Brunotte(Piano) & Rick Jones(Bass) perform their own brand of lyrical jazz, influenced by the tradition, but in their own personal voice. As exhibited in 'Conversations,' they love the Great American Songbook. This CD of duets is full of interplay and sensitivity.
Both Rick & Gary currently live in the North Carolina Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill)and frequently play nightclubs. Gary is a Berklee Graduate and former instructor. His first CD, Yesterday's Dream, was released in 1993, featuring Eric Marienthal on Sax and Gary on Piano. It received excellent reviews in both JazzTimes and Billboard. Not only is Rick a wonderful Bassist, he has a PhD in Electrical Engineering and he is the founder of The Acoustic Image, makers of leading edge amplifiers.
