Pablo to Release New Joe Pass Tracks and Best Of CDs

A disc of previously unreleased recordings by the late Joe Pass (pictured) will be out August 31 on the Pablo label. Titled Virtuoso in New York, the CD collects nine tracks that the guitarist recorded two years after his famous 1973 solo LP Virtuoso. The forthcoming album also features an unaccompanied Pass, who plays a set of standards like “The Way You Look Tonight” and “A Ghost of a Chance.” The session that yielded these unearthed cuts took place at New York City’s RCA Recording Studios on June 5 or June 6, 1975. Sounds clips of select album tracks can be heard by clicking here.
