MUSIC REVIEW BY George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Intimate interaction takes place between vocalist Laurie Antonioli and pianist Richie Beirach during this (mostly) duet session. Bassist Pepe Berns shows up for a sensitive read of "Gentle Rain" and a three part "Resolution Suite" but for the most part you get voice and ivories searching various dynamics and rhythms. Sometimes Antonioli whispers and speaks low when she speaks love, whle on "Summer Night" the two swing it confidently. A read of "My Funny Valentine" is impressionistically abstract, while a wordless take of John Coltrane's "Impressions" is served dynamically. Beirach serves the mood well, knowing when to step aside and when to push, creating a multicolored mood on "Over the Rainbow." This album makes art out of music.
