In one of the most satisfying concerts of his career as a solo guitarist, Joe Pass in 1984 mesmerized an audience at Long Beach City College in California. In his notes for the original issue of this album, Pass, the possessor of one of the most unified conceptions in jazz, wrote, ". . .I found myself playing a little more cohesively and a few things I hadn't heard played by myself before [italics added]--some new ideas, or old ideas in new places. . . ." "A few things I hadn't heard played by myself before": that's a definition of the element of surprise that makes jazz improvisation a great artistic adventure for the player and the listener. In this recital of blues and standard songs, Pass surpasses himself. Surprises abound. His and the audience's delight in them is palpable, nowhere more than in his medley of Duke Ellington compositions.
