Wouldn't you like to be able to say Don Grusin, Alex Acuna and Ernie Watts were your old pals? Wouldn't you like to have Allen Vizzutti and Gary Herbig in your Rolodex? This vibe/bass duo who've been at it for 40 years, since they were teens, can and does. Hip, creative but still accessible, everybody here is playing like they are having a good time and by all bets, it seems like the spirit should be infectious. The vibe goes back to the 80s and it feels a lot like a Windham Hill meets Flying Fish date that would have turned out if Mike Marshall met up with Jay Unger. This is what happens when you flash some commercial jazz that doesn't have a yucky side. Well done.
