Pablo serves up another scoop of material from the delicious John Pisano guitar duet sessions of summer/fall 1994 with no dropoff at all in tasty musical value. Lee Ritenour, Phil Upchurch, Ted Greene and Dori Caymmi return from the Among Friends CD, and additional cooking sessions with Joe Diorio and acoustic-only duets with Gene Bertoncini turn up. Along with a quota of standards and overlooked gems like Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Captain Bacardi," there are more delectable Pisano compositions to be heard, five in all. One of the best is the jazz waltz with Diorio, "Blues for Joe," presumably written in memory of longtime partner Joe Pass, who died two months before the session; the opening sounds more like a celebration of Wes Montgomery. But no, the actual tributes to Wes come on "Jo-Wes" and "Whisper Not," with Ritenour doing his relaxed octave impressions. Again Pisano's inventive work in bop, bossa and ballad forms is easily a match for those of his better-known colleagues, and the rhythm sections are comprised of hard-swinging L.A.-based veterans. ~ Richard S. Ginell
