A great set for guitarists and rhythm section players from Jimmy Raney, one of the most sophisticated and inventive bebop guitarists. All duets are written in C concert with chord progressions transposed for Bb and Eb instruments. Stereo separation allows you to switch off one channel and fill in the missing part. Melodies are written in duet form with Jimmy comping on one channel and soloing on the other.
An ideal set for bassists and drummers as there are no other instruments on the record. Jimmys time is excellent. Try playing the recording in stereo, then separate the channels. Horn players can solo while Jimmy accompanies. Book/CD, 40 pages.
Rhythm section: Jimmy Raney (guitar).
