George Barnes/Carl Kress Duo: George Barnes; Carl Kress (guitar).
George Barnes Second Quartet: George Barnes (guitar); Dick Hyman, Hank Jones (piano); Milt Hinton (bass); Jo Jones (drums).
George Barnes and Carl Kress often teamed up to play guitar duets from 1962-65, although they made relatively few recordings. This Audiophile LP was their last meeting on record, and it finds the pair in high spirits on a dozen selections -- 11 standards and their collaboration "Don't Be Nervous." Highlights of this enjoyable set include "Blue Moon," "Undecided" and "Tea for Two." ~ Scott Yanow
