Joe Beck (1945 - 2008) and Laura Theodore make the perfect jazz pairing in this fine collection. Together they have created an excellent sound, a sound that is both imaginative and intimate in expression. Golden Earrings is a memorable duo recording that is destined to become a classic of its kind with its impeccable, perfect performances by Beck and Theodore.
Joe Beck was always a fine guitarist, and in this collection, he shines. His performances are subtle and complex. Beck is one of a kind, and his uniqueness as a jazz guitarist will be greatly missed.
Laura Theodore remains one of the finest jazz singers in contemporary jazz, and her voice is at its finest in these well-crafted performances. Her voice has a unique intimacy.
This is a CD collection jazz listeners will want to have in their home library. There are sixteen songs in the collection. Songs include "Johnny Guitar," "Why Don't You Do Right?," "Take A Little Time To Smile," "Fever," "My Small Senor," "Don't smoke In Bed," "I Get Along Without You Very Well," "You Was Right Baby," "I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me," "Solitude," "Everything Is Moving Too Fast," "When You Speak With Your Eyes," "Golden Earrings," "I Don't Know Enough Aoubt You," "What More Can A Woman Do?," and "Manana."
If you are a fan of the late Joe Beck and Laura Theodore, you will want to have this CD. It provides hours of repeat listening pleasure by two of the great jazz greats in contemporary jazz.
Highly recommended. Nice and easy, perfectly enjoyable!
