"The title of this jazz-duet album nails what’s great about it: Keyboardist/percussionist Rosen and reedman/vocalist Strickland - both local jazz lumininaries - communicate on an instinctive level. Finishing each other’s thoughts and phrases as these tunes wend their way from churchy, soul-jazz to more abstract precincts. Rosen and Strickland are more than just in sync - they often sound like a single musician playing two instruments." -Kevin R. Convey, Boston Herald

"With the soul of an improv jam session, these two are one of the tastiest, new treats to come along in a while. Fine stuff that adults will love hearing when they are in an off-the-clock mode. Check it out." Chris Spector, Midwest Record
