ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Two world renowned guitarist pay tribute to John Abercrombie. On For John,
Grammy nominated guitarist David Becker teams up with former Ray Charles
guitarist Brad Rabuchin in a stunning duo outing that embarks on a number of
musical expeditions. The two guitarists have known each other for more than 35 years,
but had yet to record together until now.
Although only one of Abercrombie’s compositions is addressed; in their stunning
version of Ralph's Piano Waltz, Becker and Rabuchin show their deep appreciation
for John’s sensibility in playing in a duo setting demonstrating their own high standard
of communication and dialog.
Many of the titles are directly related to the late guitarist including the improvised
Crumbles, My Man Fred and Less Time (a play on the Abercrombie title
Timeless). The title As a Matter of Fact We were Trying to Make Money is
actually a direct Abercrombie quote. As Becker elaborates, “When my brother was first
studying with drum guru Freddie Gruber, he played Bruce John’s debut album
Timeless and said, “You think these guys are trying to make money?” Years later Bruce
would tell John this story and his response was that title verbatim. The album also
reflects John’s impeccable sense of humor for which he was also known.
Throughout the recording Becker and Rabuchin pay close attention to detail and whether
performing standards like Have You met Miss Jones, Afro Blue, the Becker penned
Brad’s Blues, the Rabuchin ballad Mist Melting or the above mentioned improvised
pieces, they successfully weave in and out musically maintaining a deep understanding
of improvisation and story telling that was John Abercrombie’s legacy.
The tile track was written by Becker the day after Abercrombie’s untimely passing in
August 2017 and is a somber 3/4 piece which aptly closes this extraordinary duo outing.
