5.0 out of 5 stars A 'desert island' top 5 pick December 30, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I listened to the title track at least a dozen times before I 'got it'. The melodic lines in 'Duet' are so complex and rythmically challenging, that it seemed almost chaotic. I was absolutely stunned when the whole vast, sweeping pattern started to emerge. To this day, some 20+ years later, I can still find new nuances and surprises; it is one of the most gratifying albums I know of, full of wonderful counterpoint and thrilling modulations. History will, I believe, place this Chic Corea composition alongside those of Chopin. The technical supremacy demonstrated by Burton and Corea is unparalleled; this is one great roller-coaster ride of a tune. The children's songs lend some balance, I suppose, to the frantic pace of the opener, but seem a bit out of place. Other pieces like 'Radio', however, offer up some very satisfying and approachable listening. I thoroughly recommend this album to anyone wanting to bite off a little more than is found in your usual easy-listening jazz album. It's one of the best ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Duet Sweet September 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A classic. If you like your jazz pleasant but with some complexity this is a great place to start. The music works on lots of levels. It can be playing in the background getting everyone to chill. You can listen to the two virtusos go for it. Few albums have such impact and longevity.

Burton and Corea are also fantastic to see live.

Part of my jazz canon.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets December 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I still get chills at the total pleasure of listening to many passages in Duet - I was wearing out my vinyl copy when the CD was released. The music has plenty of energy but it's wonderful, lyrical complexity is true jazz virtuosity. I've seen these guys live with other people - this recording captures some of their best work...
