Jim Beard/Jon Her­ing­ton Chunks And Chair­knobs Jaz­zline


Get­ting down with the Dan men Jim Beard (piano) and Jon Her­ing­ton (gui­tar) have been mu­si­cal al­lies for longer than ei­ther of them would care to re­mem­ber, both as ses­sion men and guests on each other’s solo projects. More re­cently they have shared the stage in Steely Dan’s tour­ing band and so some sort of col­lab­o­ra­tion on a duo pro­ject seemed fated. Play­ers who have pulled this in­stru­men­tal mix off in the past in­clude Bill Evans/Jim Hall

(Un­der­cur­rent and In­ter­mod­u­la­tion) and Joe Pass/Jimmy Rowles (Check­mate). Messrs Beard and Her­ing­ton can add their names to the list of suc­cess­ful blend­ing, too, as this al­bum is a de­light, each player giv­ing the other space through­out the al­bum. Her­ing­ton shines on taste­fully sparse gui­tar and both mu­si­cians pay trib­ute to their cur­rent gig with an ex­cel­lent duet on Gau­cho. [DM] Stand­out track: Gau­cho For fans of: Steely Dan, Jim Hall
