First Listen: Oliver Gannon and Bill Coon – Two Much More

These two great west coast guitar players are back 10 years after their first recording Too Much.

It’s been said Oliver Gannon is to Vancouver what Ed Bickert is to Toronto, while Bill Coon is known for his musical partnership with vocalist Denzal Sinclaire. The recording is not competition, no one is trying to one-up here, just to friends who enjoy playing together on an album heavy on standards.

The album’s title brings to mind Wes Montgomery’s So Much Guitar but the playing is more reminiscent of Jim Hall and Barney Kessel.

Darren Radtke plays bass and Dave Robbins on drums. "Sassy" is your First Listen for July 3.
