Jiggs Whigham/Gene Bertoncini: Jiggs and Gene

This trombone/guitar duo record demands a lot of the perpetrators, who let the buck stop right there by making things remarkably easy on the listener. Whigham’s effortlessly melodic mainstream blowing is matched with some of the best guitar work I’ve heard in a long time. Bertoncini has great command, a beautiful touch, and puts together his highly personal voicings with the instincts of a great accompanist. Highly recommended, especially to guitarists.
