Amazingly talented and yet almost completely unknown guitar
duo. They do contemporary-style jazz
, and write almost all their own songs.
Tuck Andress is the guitar player, and is perhaps the finest guitarist I've ever heard, judging by technical ability at least. On his most impressive solo songs, he's known to play a bassline, comp, and solo all at one time, while also keeping rhythm with that distinctive click made by hitting the strings. It's really amazing to hear, one can wonder whether it's really only one guitar playing, or if there are multiple tracks. And people get all excited about Santana...
Patti Cathcart is the singer, and has quite a nice voice. She writes the songs as well, for the most part, which deserves quite a lot of praise in itself, as Tuck & Patti's originals are fantastic.
They have a website at www.tuckandpatti.com. It's an awesome website, where they both delve into what makes them tick as musicians. "Tuck's Corner" deals with a lot of theory of guitar playing, and should be of interest to any guitarist.
Oh, and did I mention that they're married? How sweet...
