Bill 'N' Burr
This is a jazz duo album from Hollywood guitar whiz Bill Ryan and veteran jazz vocalist Burr Middleton. The boys romp through old favorites from The Great American Songbook, all by themselves. The results combine Ryan's artistry and Middleton's superb timing into a wonderland of the days when talent was the mainstay of the music business. Saluting such stalwarts as the Brothers Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Fats Waller, and Matt Dennis, new and fresh approaches come forward from 'Bill 'N' Burr'. Mercer's 'Jamboree Jones' is a neat feat in itself for two fellows willing to fly alone and is not to be missed. If you're looking for a musical adventure that will transport you into a state of nirvana by simply listening to tunes that were written by the Masters, this CD is your ticket to THE TRUTH!
