(Nov 22, 2012): Jimmy Bruno and Joe Beck – Tenderly

From the 2000 album, Polarity.  One of the early 2000 guitar duo LPs.  Bruno plays a custom-built 7-string guitar and Beck is on an an even more unusual “alto guitar,” which extends his low and high ranges and makes him sound at times almost like a piano. Here you have Beck’s solo rendition of “Tenderly,” but the rest of the album mainly sets Bruno’s ambitious bebop against Beck’s lush chordal accompaniments.
