Album Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine []

Me & Jerry may be the first of Chet & Jerry's recorded duets, but it's so relaxed in its interplay that it's clear that the two guitarists had been picking together for a long time. It's that smooth, easy feel that's the chief appeal of Me & Jerry, but it's also deceptive, hiding just how clever the duo's rearrangements of ''MacArthur Park'' and ''Something'' are. Then again, virtuosity is always more appealing when it doesn't call attention to itself, a trap Atkins and Reed always avoid here. The two simply lay back and play, trading lines and licks with an easy grace, having so much fun that it's impossible to not share in their joy.
