The title doesn't lie, Two Tenor Ballads pairs two stylistically different, great tenor players on a program of 9 iconic ballads.
Tad Shull, the veteran tenorman with a big old-school sound and modern concept and the great Mark Turner with a more legato concept.
In the rhythm section pianist Kevin Hays, bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Billy Drummond.
A beautiful album and a worthy addition to the Romantic Tenor pantheon.
