Great underrated CD
Cat's Eye | Miami Florida USA | 08/15/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Excerpt from CollegeMusicGuide
Most of this recording is a set of duets by pianist Franck Amsallem and Tim Ries (on tenor, soprano, and flute). Leon Parker adds his minimalist drums to a few of the selections. With the exception of "We'll Be Together Again," all of the music (which includes a few brief interludes along with full-length pieces) consists of originals by either Amsallem or Ries. Some of the pieces are free in spots, most are thoughtful and lyrical, and there is some heat generated in spots. In general, the improvising is subtle and finds the duo members reacting constantly to each other. Well worth a few listens.

Excerpt from CMJ (College Music Journal)
Montmartre | Brooklyn, NY | 08/15/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"...sterling interplay, pristine sonics and joyous creation. This hour long DDD platter spotlights the engaging melodicism and venturesome romps of pianist Amsallem and reedman Ries. The resoundly subtle percussion of Leon Parker enhances selected numbers.
