MUSIC REVIEW BY Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

This collaboration by Tom Collier and Dan Dean is a bit reminiscent at times of Gary Burton and Steve Swallow, possibly because that project might have been the only previous set of vibes-electric bass duets. Vibraphonist Collier hints at Burton in spots, but also displays his own musical personality, particularly on the more boppish pieces, such as Gerry Mulligan's "Five Brothers" and "So What." Dean is a particularly fluent and witty electric bassist, and although he is generally in a supportive role, he sometimes steals solo honors. This unusual set, which has interpretations that range from the heated to the introspective, works quite well and is quite enjoyable.
