Album Review

Trombonist Conrad Herwig and pianist Andy LaVerne picked some beautiful, modern tunes for this duo session. In addition to music by McCoy Tyner, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, John Coltrane, Hubert Laws, and George Cables, they tangle with Brubeck's "In Your Own Sweet Way," Ellington's "African Flower," and Jobim's "If You Never Come to Me."
