A dazzling duet

Ken Peplowski has long been one of jazz’s top clarinetists and also ranks high on tenor.

Frank Vignola may be a bit underrated but on guitar (acoustic or electric), he is consistently outstanding.

At the 1995 Bern Jazz Festival, Peplowski and Vignola fearlessly dive into a rapid version of the trad jazz standard “Tiger Rag.”

As remarkable as Peplowski’s playing is, Vignola’s ability to solo on acoustic guitar while keeping the blazing tempo going all by himself is remarkable.
