Comparing Notes finds Charles Alexander in the company of fellow guitarist Andy Robinson for a series of sparkling duets.The material mainly comprises of standards but they also have a special affinity for the music of Pat Metheny and include three of his compositions-"Farmer's Trust", "River Quay" and "Travels". Metheny writes beautiful tunes and the pieces included here capture him at his most melodic. They're a joy to listen to and Alexander and Robinson more than do them justice.

Their playing on the standards is relaxed and conversational with some fine interplay between the two musicians and with solo duties pretty much equally divided. The syrupy, well rounded tones of Alexander's solid bodied 1968 Gibson ES 335 have that archetypal "jazz guitar" sound and contrast well with Robinson's distinctive seven stringed semi acoustic Manson. - Ian Mann, 24dash.com
