Wood And Strings

You wouldn’t think so, but jazz guitar and bass duets are surprisingly rare in recorded jazz, especially considering how common they are on stage. Maybe it’s the sheer nature of the musical context, how it discourages musicians from attempting such stark documentation of their art. There certainly is no place to hide, and it becomes a real challenge to create a compelling musical experience. But that’s if you’re talking about the project in the wrong hands. In the right hands, a guitar and bass can reward the listener with often exhilarating, beautifully nuanced interplay: a musical gift combining individual visions with mutual respect.

Wood and Strings shines an intimate light on the simple joys of collaboration. John Stein and Dave Zinno bring with them lifetimes of musical experience and the canny ability to cultivate personal and musical ground together. Stein, a proven and revered force in traditional jazz, boasts his customarily warm tone, round and creamy, a perfect match for acoustic bass. Zinno’s pitch is wonderful and the tone is deep, dark and woody.

In terms of artistry, they both have a deft touch, derived from years of caressing and cajoling, coaxing and stroking their strings. Delving deeper into technique, they have profound knowledge of improvisation that’s beautifully tied to chord progressions, phrasing, melodicism and harmony. Both musicians have an internalized pulse and go deep into the groove of each tune regardless of tempo or style.

In other words, it’s like two brilliant philosophers were whispering to one another, a gorgeous dance where the participants, eyes fixed, express themselves as they circle one another, all the while making certain to leave enough space for the other to perform fully. This is a soft musical conversation that comes from a deep place, where the listener will be compelled to “lean in” to catch every expression.

If there is an essential quality to this collection, it’s that Stein, through his compositions, arrangements, and performances, has created the environment in which he and Zinno can play in the moment while creating something of timeless beauty. The Whaling City Sound label’s newest worthwhile collection, Wood and Strings could not be recommended more highly.
