CD Reviews

Humor and lyricism in equal measure.
Robert Douglas (douglastrio@yahoo.c | San Francisco, Clifornia | 11/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an unusually entertaining selection of tunes, some of which are not often heard in the jazz repetoir,an example of which is Orphan Annie's "Tomorrow". You should be amused by the title piece which plays with the standard," Close Your Eyes". Slam and Major Holly create fascinating patterns an octave appart (Slam high and Holly low) with their unique bass stylings. Dick Hyman plays against the contrabasses for the necessary relief."

"Slam is absolutely on top of his game here. Does great with dueling duos, such as previous collaborations with with Eroll Gardner and Stephan Grapelli. Major Holley is a great foil for Slam. Recommended v. highly."
A Bass Players 'Must Have!'

"You gotta catch 'Slam' and 'Mule' cuttin' on this killer recording. You'll have no problem telling one from the other and Dick Hyman and Oliver Jackson lay down great comping and interplay. This recording is oozing with melodic content and and humor. I wanted to hear more bass and less vocal the 1st few time I listened to it but the more I listen to it, the more I like the mix. Put it on after a Jaco or Victor Wooten CD and see how the masters do more with less. If you play or like the bass, it's money well spent."
