Andy Summers/Victor Biglione: Strings of Desire

Andy Summers goes unplugged for a fine, fluid duet recording with a gifted Brazilian friend, Victor Biglione on Strings of Desire. Together, they create a flexible-yet-taut two-guitar weave; as soloists, Summers is the laconic one, Biglione the more antic one, given to rapid spurts. They engage in fiery exchanges, but also softly-strung tenderness, as with the pensive Brubeck classic “In Your Own Sweet Way” and “Stolen Moments,” closing out with the sweetly undulant “Samba for Counting the Days.”
