Harry Avant

Outstanding duo guitarists and really great songs.
Here are two guitar players that know how to handle leads and do outstanding comping. The way they support each other is reminiscent of the great guitar duos of the past but with a modern sound and with the advantages of a piano, bass and drum. I was glad the piano never played over the guitars. Let me know when their next CD is coming out.

This album is the result of the big execution and interpretation obtained from two big artists.This is the poetry of the good and agreeableness sound.Wonderful.My compliments

Buy This CD
I first heard "Tea For Two" on a local radio program, and through some effort managed to track down the name of the CD and the artists. Lovely relaxed playing style, very supple, deceptively easy. Some old-fashioned surprises: "Three Little Words" and "Show Me." "Tea For Two" is still my favorite track, though, and I think of my grandmother each time I hear it. Thank you, Steve and Vince!

TASTE! TASTEFUL! TASTY! WONDERFUL TONE,HARMONY,RHYTHM!
I dont even HAVE this CD yet!THEY SOLD OUT!However,listening to the exerpts on the website,and speaking
as a guitarist of many years experience playing in a guitar duo format for latin,jazz,standards etc.,I LOVE IT!The tone is beautiful,the playing superb,the tasteful tracks with no
pyrotechnics,no superfluous displays of speed or technique,
all point towards experienced musicians with nothing to prove,enjoying contributing to a CD that will be a fitting tribute to their craft.Complete as a guitar duo,they are turbo-boosted on various tracks by addition of Piano/bass/drums.Faultless ear for harmony,great rhythmic feel--boy would I LOVE to play with them!
I eagerly await my CD and then the next one.Keep 'em coming please.geoffmenzer@tiscali.co.uk
