Rating: 92/100 (learn more)

Now this is a match made in jazz heaven. Ron Eschete shows off his guitar mastery while Mort Weiss swoops his way through the swingin' chord solos. With the expanded sonic palette of the 7-string guitar, it almost seems like there are more than two musicians playing. What's great about this particular format is that it pretty much requires the musicians to assume nontraditional roles. It's that stretch of responsibilities that produces some great and unexpected results.
