Due Duo Quartet
Celebrating the Music of Guitar and Trumpet
Seedling Music Presents...
Due Duo (It.) Two Pair
The idea of two duos - guitars and trumpets - has allowed us to create a new, yet old sonic resonance that echoes forth from the world’s most bountiful sources of music.
Playing what might be considered multi-cultural classical, folk, jazz or popular standard songs, Due Duo Quartet explores the colors, the harmonies, the feelings, and the musical expressions of by-gone and contemporary times. We bring melodies and rhythms from different parts of the world together to create something which is new and beautiful, transcendental, and hopefully, transformational.
The musicians in the Due Duo Quartet are Fred Benedetti and George Svoboda, guitars, with Philip Tauber and Calvin Price, trumpets.
“We come from multi-cultural families and all have studied different languages and music from different parts of the world. We have known each other and made music with one another for over 20 years.”
This first compilation of recorded material by Due Duo Quartet is called "December Stars " - an introduction to the musical world we will be continually exploring. " December Stars" is not in the heavens but in the minds of those who can reflect on the music heard through their experiences of December years passed. Also, there are some new pieces written especially to show off the color soundscapes of December. Please enjoy the music of "December Stars", available now on our new CD.
Our new album is NOW available for only $14.95 and includes FREE shipping anywhere in the world!
And musicians, orchestra and band directors, order our music for your own performances and teachings!
This 700 plus page text for serious players teaches that Jazz in the musical arts de-emphasizes the power of the intellect and extols that of intuitive action…its ultimate aim is to free the individual from licks, cliché’, anger, illusion, and false passion; To find one's own original voice.
