100 Nights of Jazz a collaboration of La Cour and Classic Pianos presents the Paleolithic String Trio streamed from Classic Pianos.
Guitarists Howard Slavin and Doug Switzer have been making music together for over two decades. Active in the jazz community they have in individually performed in many settings from duos to big bands. For this project they are joined by bassist Greg Clough. In 2001, Howard and Doug produced a CD of guitar duets entitled “Bob, Blues and Bossa”, believing that the duo offers a format that is unique in music. It gives the player a level of freedom that is not possible in larger groups and provides the backing that is missing in solo performance. The opportunity for interaction and dialog can be remarkable. Whenever they are able to share it Howard and Doug revisit the joy of that duo experience. Here, the feature of an additional bass brings, depth and warmth.
