Jim Hall and Ron Carter did it, Pat Metheny / Charlie Haden and Ralph Towner / Gary Peacock as well, and now Jon Eberson (electric guitar) and Sigurd Hole (double bass) have also done it: Made their duo album with two heads, Ten strings and 20 fingers in tight, responsive communication. “Jon Eberson and Sigurd Hole plays ballads” offers a selection of standard songs, among other things. “A Nightingale Song in Berkeley Square,” “My Man’s Gone Now,” “Stairway to the Stars,” and “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?”, Complemented by the Norwegian children’s song “Blueman” and Jon Eberson’s own “Blues Mummy” “. As the album title tells, it’s about slow versions where melody storytelling, accompaniment and improvisations replace – and infiltrate – each other with calm breath and pulse, and the interaction blends just as comfortably and deliberately as one might expect from two practitioners who have collaborated for a number of years , both in Jon Eberson’s groups and as teacher colleagues at the Norwegian Academy of Music.
