It has been many years since Jim Shannon and Mack Goldsbury crossed paths at the North Texas State School of Music. There they found an excellent musical environment in the Jazz Clubs in Dallas/Fort Worth. They had the opportunity to play with some of the Jazz greats who came through the area. There were also excellent local musicians who worked in the vibrant music scene that existed during that time. The professional relationship between Mack and Jim soon evolved into a life long friendship. In 2009 Mack suggested that they produce a Duo CD. It was decided that the music would consist of standards with a blues written by Jim thrown into the mix. The Duo make the standards sound as if you are hearing them for the first time. The intimacy gained by live recording puts Mack and Jim right in your living room. Spontaneous in the moment renditions of great tunes!
