"Bay Area pianist Barbara Higbie and violinist Darol Anger created a lasting work of wit, talent, and beauty in their album "Tidline," recorded in the early 1980s on the Windham Hill label. This sparkling collection of original compositions for violin and piano is a standout. Although they went on to colaborate with Mike Marshall and others as the Montreux band, and later parted ways for separate collaborations with the Turtle Island String Quartet, Theresa Trull, Matt Glaser and others, this first offering of theirs captures their unique and timeless sound. Their unique brand of energetic Bay Area music cross-pollinated and influenced many contemporary musicians. Pieces on this album range from playful to brooding, driving to laid back. The style is indefinable with elements of jazz, classical, contemporary, rock, roots, string band, swing, ethnic and world music--it is a sound unmistakably their own. Listeners to National Public Radio affiliates may recognize familiar snippits nabbed for inclusion on countless radio programs. Tideline remains a favorite of mine after 20 years of listening."
