2019 CD release.
Unique piano-guitar project by veteran musicians and seasoned session players. Jim Beard is the New York-based producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, who was signed to Creed Taylor's CTI Records and has worked e.g. with Wayne Shorter, John McLaughlin, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield. Jon Herington's fine guitar can be heard on four solo albums and on LPs by Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Mike Stern, sax player Bill Evans and more -- both are as well sidemen in Steely Dan. On their first duet project together, Chunks And Chairknobs, seasoned session veterans Jim Beard and Jon Herington explore their rare chemistry.
A fascinating project that organically blends their mutual interest in rock, pop, bossa, blues, and jazz while also acknowledging their longstanding gig as sidemen in the game-changing band Steely Dan, this intimate encounter finds the two kindred spirits divvying up duties on eight tunes, easily alternating roles, comping supportively for each other while delivering melodic gems and brilliant solos along the way. A thoroughly engaging project, Chunks And Chairknobs is the result of what happens when two seasoned professional musicians with longstanding, indelible chemistry get together in the studio to create. Magic ensues! Comprehensive liner notes by Bill Milkowski.
