"Bob Cooper and Bud Shank had been friends and the music industry's equivalent of fraternity brothers for about 45 years when this album was conceived at the North Sea Jazz Fesitval just before Coop's death in 1993. That brand of communication which transcends notes between two veteran players is richly in evidence here made even better by the solid backing of the world famous Netherlands Metropole Orchestra. Swingin', solid blowin' followed by sensitive ballad treatments. This album was a pleasant surprise to me coming out long after Coop's death. Didn't even know it was in the can. And what a wonderful closing memory I now have of my uncle's mark on the world. Yes, I'm prejudiced, but here's one not to be missed."
