When two musicians like Frank Haunschild and John Stowell meet up for a dialogue of guitars, one can expect an extraordinary result. The two of them are masters of the jazzy style in all hues, they play electric and acoustic, and they both love to cross the boundaries of abstraction and harmonious sound. “Listen To This” is indeed one of the most beautiful and interesting jazz guitar duo recordings of the past few years. The repertoire, which includes works of Jobim, Miles Davis and John Abercrombie amongst others, serves as a platform for imaginative improvisations that document both the connection and the difference between our two string heroes. Ephemeral atmosphere, driving swing lines and a slew of electric and acoustic guitars that have been recorded in impeccable quality, ensure flawless hearing pleasure.
