Sheila Landis and Rick Matle continue the tradition of jazz guitar and vocal duets established by stalwarts Joe Pass and Ella Fitzgerald with standards, original compositions and fluent Latin pieces. Originally inspired by the glowing collaborations of Tuck and Patti, Matle and Landis shine in the intimate duo setting. “Throughout, one can’t help but be impressed by their easy rapport, intuitive phrasings and hip harmonies…and when Landis scats, well, the spirit of Ella lives.” Chuck Berg, JazzTimes Magazine.  The 2016 CD release "Beautiful Things" is a continuation of their exciting vocal and guitar interplay.
