With just two guitars, legendary virtuosos Bucky Pizzarelli and Frank Vignola craft a seamless blend of classics from the great American songbook, providing the perfect musical compliment for wherever you are and whatever you are doing. Bucky and Frank set the mood through gorgeous melodies gently strummed and picked as only these two masters are capable.Dinner music gets a bad rap. When you take a moment to consider evening meal soundtracks, you probably conjure up auditory images of bland sounds that quietly arrive and depart… much like the succulent scents of various dishes… yet never quite register in the old memory bank. However, just because a musical vibe happens to go well with nightfall’s tastes and aromas doesn’t automatically make it a bad thing. Fine wine doesn’t get knocked whenever it compliments a meal. In fact, such beverages actually gain respect for how they enhance the dining experience. So why doesn’t music get these same props? There could just be a double standard at play here.Let’s begin undoing this injustice with a few thoughts about Bucky Pizzarelli and Frank Vignola. These two fine acoustic jazz guitarists released their excellent Moonglow CD back in 2005, an album that goes just as well with beef as it does with fish. Moonglow is a 16-song set of jazz and pop standards, comforting on the ears and easy to digest. Nothing here requires concentrated mastication; it all flows together seamlessly in one continuous, beatific, aural stream.

Nevertheless, true jazz connoisseurs will likely pick up on the many subtle flavors. Listen closely, and you can hear how notes are carefully bent during “P.S. I Love You,” or just let yourself bask in how “I’m Confessin'” and “Deep Purple”swing easily without ever jerking the listener. “Whispering” features some relatively aggressive rhythmic strumming, but this is only done in order to keep the tempo clicking along. “Moonglow” opens with an amazing string-of-notes solo, but this moment of flash is a rarity; there is very little showing off going on around here.

“An extraordinary event… two giants meet for an evening of great American music.” –Cafe Guide
