When Neil Lamb and Dave Lawlor first met they had each been playing solo jazz guitar for years. They were introduced by mutual friend, guitar virtuoso Mark Kleinhaut, who said, ' You guys know some jazz guitar but you need to play with other people. Jazz is a language and you shouldn't spend your whole time talking to yourself '. Following an initial jam in which it was clear that their different approaches ( 7 string finger style and 6 string pick style) were complimentary, they agreed to get together regularly and see where it led. Gradually they developed unique arrangements of both classic jazz tunes and their own originals. After a couple of years, and some well received public performances, it was time to capture their unique sounds with this recording.
