"High Peaks" by Paul Hofmann & Bob Sneider
About the Album
Through their first two releases, 2004's "Interconnection" and 2006's "Escapade," guitarist Bob Sneider and pianist Paul Hofmann have developed a masterful and imaginative creative duo dynamic that coalesces in their finest effort to date, "Serve And Volley." The 66- minute program features original music by Hofmann and Sneider as well as covers of two classic jazz piano compositions - "Peri's Scope" by Bill Evans (including the exciting incorporation of Evans's original improvisation into the duo arrangement) and "Inception," McCoy Tyner's rollicking minor blues. Recorded by Kent Heckman at his famed Red Rock Recording in Saylorsburg, PA, "Serve and Volley" is a swinging, accessible and highly rewarding peek into a very creative relationship.
