Album Review

This duo session was first released by Birdology in 1999 and reissued by Dreyfus in 2002. It features the underappreciated pianist Bill Carrothers in the company of the celebrated drummer Bill Stewart.

His back-to-back originals — the busy "A Squirrel's Tale" and the sad, lyrical "Vito" — are a study in contrasts, giving Stewart a chance to display his expansive palette. ~ David R. Adler, Rovi
