BARBIERO & BOCCI/Wooden Mirrors (Midwest Record review)

BARBIERO & BOCCI/Wooden Mirrors: There's been a lot of interesting bass only records lately and this one joins the list of good ones. It seems kind of like a set real eggheads will appreciate as the bass interplay between the duo goes to some really deep places. With a lite classical edge, this recital type recording hit's the bulls eye it's aiming for and really reaches the Jaco in anyone.
