"What would you get if you put Egberto and Nana alone in a room together?

On the first half of this CD, the two men work in rather tight structures, with largely brisk tempos. On these songs, the two men get to flex their muscles. Their chops are impressive. However, it feels like they're sometimes stepping on each others toes, despite the stellar skills of each of them. Or, maybe they're simply not giving the listener enough space in which to breath.

On the second half of the CD, however, things relax. There's a loose spontaneity, much playful interplay, and many moments of magic.

The CD works best, I think, in the more relaxed and spacious sections. These sections are, in fact, very beautiful.

I love these two artists, and I'm glad for this CD.

For Egberto in a consistently rewarding duet setting, I suggest the wonderful CD "Charlie Haden and Egberto Gismonti in Montreal.""
