How can just two guys make so much music? As you listen to the variety and range and richness of the music produced here by Howard Alden and Ken Peplowski, you are likely to ask yourself the same question. The answer is it's easy if you have the technical wherewithal, quick wits, musical intelligence and almost telepathic rapport these guys bring to bear when it's just the two of them playing together. They have such a long history that they have a common language and vocabulary that come together very quickly to create a CD filled with dazzling interplay. --Ross Firestone, author of the award-winning Swing,Swing,Swing: The Life and Times of Benny Goodman.
