Herb Ellis & Remo Palmier – Windflower {Concord}

Review by Scott Yanow (allmusic.com)

This album is most significant for being the first jazz recording in a few decades by guitarist Remo Palmier (who was also known early on as Palmieri). Fellow guitarist Herb Ellis was the leader but he gives his guest just as much solo space as he takes and, with the tasteful accompaniment of bassist George Duvivier and drummer Ron Traxler, the two old friends challenge each other on a variety of appealing chord changes including “The Night Has a Thousand Eyes,” “Close Your Eyes,” “Walkin'” and Jobim’s “Triste.” The success of this boppish set led to Palmieri getting his own Concord album the following year.
