Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Two for the Road is an album by jazz guitarists Herb Ellis and Joe Pass that was released in 1974. It was the third and last album that they recorded together.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
This recording was the third and final matchup between guitarists Herb Ellis and Joe Pass and, unlike the first two (which were both made for Concord), this is a duo date rather than a quartet session. Pass was just beginning to gain recognition for his remarkable unaccompanied solos, but Ellis had not recorded in such a sparse setting before. They complement each other quite well on such tunes as “Love for Sale,” “Seven Come Eleven,” “Oh, Lady Be Good,” “I’ve Found a New Baby,” and two versions of “Cherokee.” Highly recommended (https://goo.gl/9WBuf4).
