I'm looking for any Jazz album recommendations that have a guitar and bass duo where neither instrument is necessarily the "backing" instrument. I'm hoping someone can recommend to me an album similar to Joe Pass and Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen's "Chops" album. Niels-henning is exactly the style of excellent bass that I'm looking for.
I listened to Phillip Catherine's "Art of the duo" and while it was a good album the bass was too background (i.e. backing instrument) and the guitar a little too leading (not much chording going on) for what I was looking for. I felt the same about Jim Hall and Ron Carter's "Alone Together"
I also listened to Gene Bertoncini and Michael Moore's "Two in Time" and I did enjoy this album a lot.
Again the main attribute that I'm looking for similarity to "chops" in is a guitar and bass duo with a virtuosic bass leading at times.
FYI I read this thread originally which inspired me to seek out some more: Jazz guitar / bass duo recordings?
