AllMusic Review by

On the follow-up to Two Guitars, great guitarists George Barnes (who emphasizes single-note lines) and Carl Kress (whose chord voicings were unique) once again team up, this time for seven additional standards. The second side of this LP has the duo becoming a trio with the addition of tenor saxophonist Bud Freeman, who contributes the colorfully titled originals "The Eel's Nephew" and "Disenchanted Trout." Timeless small-group swing music, it is well worth acquiring. Both of these sets should be reissued on CD.
