Howard Alden / Andy Brown Quartet
Heavy Artillery
Delmark DE 5008

New York guitarist Howard Alden and Chicago guitarist Andy Brown co-lead a swinging two-guitar quartet session. Playing a mix of standards, Brazilian tunes, and songs by fellow jazz guitarists, this recording documents a fifteen-year relationship between the two musicians. "Howard Alden belongs to a small, elite group of the very best jazz guitarists in the world" - guitar legend Johnny Smith. Andy Brown is an "uncommonly good player, with a modesty that brings to mind the fine Canadian guitarist Ed Bickert and a warmth suggestive of Joe Pass" - DownBeat. "Brown and Alden don't merely mimic an earlier era in jazz history-they build upon it, offering a freshness of spirit that transcends any particular period or style" - Chicago Tribune.
