Sounds! - Jack Marshall & Shelly Manne

Jack Marshall (Guitar) & Shelly Manne (Percussion)
Capitol Records ST 2610
Produced by David Cavanaugh
Cover photo by George Jerman

Excellent engineering by Hugh Davies put the sound of these two excellent musicians right in the middle of your living room.

Your experience begins with the understated, but sexy and well designed cover art. On disc you'll enjoy an understated spot-on creative minimalist approach to the arrangements. The relaxed nature of the sound is sweet, but if you play music yourself you will appreciate the amazing control the two artist have over their craft.

From the back cover: When an expert dancer performs a routine, it's done with grace and beauty that belies its intricacy. So with Manne and Marshall in this album, for every second of recording was a test in precision and coordination.
