MUSIC REVIEW BY Ian MacGregor, Jazz Guitar Society of Western Australia

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Our member John Stowell has recorded with many different guitarists and on this latest CD he teams up with Swedish guitarist Ulf Bendgren. Ulf currently teaches guitar/ensemble at the Academy of Music and Drama, University of Gothenburg. Both players on this album are playing Mike Doolin guitars, John a nylon string and Ulf a steel string. They have an amazingly warm sound. The opening track is a bright number called ?Five Roses? and after working a couple of years together, their empathy is evident. The title track ?Throop? was composed by John, all the other titles are by Ulf except for Tommy Flanagan?s ?Freight Train? a tune rarely recorded by guitarists. All the originals are melodic, swinging and very listenable. Origin Records have a fine stable of jazz guitarists on their books including John & Ulf, Mimi Fox, Inbar Fridman, Bobby Broom, Corey Christiansen, Larry Koonse and many more so check out this label. This particular album is a fine guitar duo and very worth of a listen.
