Album Review

The pairing of Bob Mintzer and Gil Goldstein as a duo is an inspired affair. With Mintzer playing tenor sax and Goldstein on piano, they each contributed a number of strong originals to the date. Mintzer's moody ballad "Longing" and intricate bop vehicle "Where's the Word" are among his finest compositions on CD. Goldstein's "Three Little Initials" is a subtle variation of the well known "Body and Soul." Mintzer switches to bass clarinet for Goldstein's lush ballad "Angelique & Ellen" (written for the film Radio Inside), a haunting treatment of the late Bill Evans' "Your Story," along with a fascinating rendition of the standard "Everything Happens to Me" that begins with an unaccompanied Eric Dolphy-inspired solo by the reed player. Goldstein's "Two to Tango" is a delightful upbeat duet for bass clarinet and accordion. Highly recommended!
