MUSIC REVIEW BY George Fendel, Jazz Society of Oregon

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Here is a duo of guitar and cello featuring two musicians who communicate with simple elegance. It is a performance of rare intimacy, not unlike what you might hear in a home concert, if you were extremely lucky. Coletta plays what he terms an electro acoustic guitar, seemingly a conflict in terms. But then you hear it, and amazingly, it doesn't sound quite electric nor acoustic. And it's a beautiful, sometimes poignant sound. Tauber plays the cello as one would play a bass, but its higher pitch is a perfect partner for the guitar. The duo plays six originals, with varying tempos, but always at the highest level of musicianship. The standards on the CD include "Nica's Dream," "Body And Soul," "How Insensitive" and "Caravan." All of the music here adds up to a spellbinding session from a gifted duo.
