Akio and Harvie S Jazz Video

I just got back in touch with an old friend and colleague, jazz guitarist Akio Sasajima (thank you Facebook). He sent me a link to this clip from his forthcoming DVD, which contains a beautiful arrangement of the famous Concerto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo. In addition to Akio's marvelous playing, the clip also features masterful playing by one of my favorite bassists, Harvie S. He plays some of the theme arco and sounds wonderful.

The collective sound of the classical guitar and the double bass is a hugely satisfying texture, and when the music is being played by the likes of Akio and Harvie, it is quite a treat.
