"This is one of three cds completed by this duet.......duet not really descriptive enough of the very contemporary sounds that result. Eddie Monteiro plays a MIDI Controller Cavichord accordian that provides a wide variety of sounds (not your "Lady Of Spain" type of thing!). Coupled with the very appealing vocals of Nancy Marano with backing vocals of Eddie, the results are astounding! The duo also does some relaxed but superb scatting as well.Jobim, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, and Johnny Mandel compositions are included as well as several standards such as "Autumn Nocturne", "Skylark", "That's All" and "A Sleepin' Bee". Flugelhornist Claudio Roditi appears on "Love Dance" while pianist Roger Kellaway and baritone saxist Gerry Mulligan are heard on individual tracks of their own compositions.This is really a very appealing album that will become a favorite within your collection."
A happy madness

"i was just browsing to see if this duo has any other stuff out there. this is one of those rare cds which i'd buy anything new and am so glad to see there are more out there!...they swing, scat, ballad and bossa nova with the best of them. i love art van damme but eddie can jam w/the best of them. he has flying fingers and the quickest mouth that can keep up w/ella any day. what a pallate of musical sounds he can emote from this accordion...this is NOT your dad's polka that you remember. this guy is a virtuoso. a better singer you can't ask for from nancy. together a perfect pair. their cohesiveness in all they do belie many years of working together. great song selections too! lyrical & musical. wow, a smoker. enjoy this little known duo...wish there were 6 stars"
