The sophisticated guitar soloist Ed Bickert can be overly relaxed when playing with a trio, so it is a joy to hear him matched up on this quartet date with the driving swing pianist Dave McKenna. Their unaccompanied duet version of “Bye Bye Baby” is a delight. The other particularly memorable performances include “You’re In Love With Someone,” “Barbados,” “Nobody Else But Me” and “Things Are Getting Better.” Recommended.
