Jazz guitarist Frank Potenza met Joe Pass in 1974,
and was both a close friend and a student until
Pass’ death in 1994. On this superb album, he pays
homage to the master in the company of drummer
Colin Bailey, bassist Jim Hughart, and guitarist John
Pisano, all of whom played on Pass’ 1964 classic For Django. Included are
the title track, “Rosetta,” and Reinhardt’s “Fleur d’Ennui” from that album,
along with a couple more Pass compositions, tunes closely associated with
him, and Pisano’s swinging “Blues for Joe.” But this isn’t merely a regurgitation
of the past—Potenza and Pisano are, of course, celebrated guitarists
themselves, and their singular musical personalities and glorious
tones infuse every note. Outstanding in every respect, this is one of the best
straight-ahead jazz albums I’ve heard in years. Capri.
