Joe Puma ‎• East Coast Jazz

One of the best records ever from guitarist Joe Puma – a player who offered his talents as a sideman on many great sessions of the 50s, but who really shines here as a leader on his own! Puma's got a clean, clear, careful touch on the strings – one that reminds us a lot of Tal Farlow on his best Verve albums of the 50s – but with a sound that's even more focused, and which is often awash in these amazing harmonics! The record features a bit of extra rhythm guitar from Barry Galbraith – playing in a mode that's got a softer swing than a piano, which might get in the way of Puma – plus vibes from Don Elliott, bass from Vinnie Burke, and drums from Ted Sommer. The mix of vibes and two guitars is about as heavenly as you can imagine – light and fluid, but still with plenty of sharper notes on Puma's solos – and tracks include the originals "Loris", "A Little Rainy", and "Pumatic" – plus "What Is There To Say" and "Liza".
