Album Review

Jerry Bergonzi and Andy LaVerne had recorded together prior to this 2003 session, but this was their first duo effort. With a great mix of standards plus four originals from the prolific LaVerne, all goes well.

Their expansive take of Thelonious Monk's "Pannonica" maintains the piece's integrity while also allowing both soloists plenty of freedom. Each of the standards sounds fresh in the duo's capable hands, especially the reharmonized treatment of Cy Coleman's "Witchcraft" and the driving take of Cole Porter's "I Love You." Recommended.
