Guitarist Chuck Wayne came to prominence in the 1940's & 50's. Best known for his work with Woody Herman and George Shearing. He was also Tony Bennett's musical director from 1953-57. Joe Puma was a contemporary of Chuck and fellow guitarists Jimmy Rainey and Johnny Smith winning the Metronome New Star award in 1957. The two guitarists teamed up in 1973 for some duet playing in the tradition of Barnes/Kress and Ellis/Pass and this resulting album is one of the best of the genre.
