The B&B Jazz Duo is the brain child of two Washington area guitarists, Jeff Burnett and Manuel Bernardo. As jazz-trained musicians who grew up playing rock, blues, and other popular styles, they wanted to take an eclectic, atypical approach to the traditional jazz songbook. Rather than plugging in and turning up, for the clean, time-honored sound of electric jazz guitar, they went acoustic, finding inspiration in two disparate guitar styles: classical and folk. With Mr. Burnett on nylon string classical guitar, and Mr. Bernardo on steel string acoustic, they have discovered a novel approach to jazz timbre, creating an unusually rich and colorful sonic palette.
