5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Easy Listening, background music October 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a classic CD with easy listening jazz music. It has an upbeat sound that is great to listen to or have in background while entertaining. I really enjoy this CD and it is one of those albums that give you a good feeling, and you love to recognize in restaurants

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a trio of classic collaborations. March 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is the second pairing of Earl Klugh and Bob James and it is a smooth, soft ride. Sandstorm is my personal favorite, with The Falcon coming in second. Great to underscore a quiet evening at home, or to listen to on the commute home from a bad day at work to calm down. I give it my highest recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic "Contemporary Jazz"! May 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Whether you call it "smooth" or "contemporary" or 'whatever' jazz, this is one of the better albums of the genre.

Both Klugh and James are outright stars in their own right, and the three collaborative efforts produced by this pairing reflect that well. This is my favorite of the three. I first heard this years ago while frequenting Tacoma Station, a bar/restaurant just outside The District. This is what they played in the house, as background music, while the jazz bands were preparing to perform. It is perfect as "dinner" music that entertains without protruding. Turn it up if you want to enjoy the virtuosity of the maestros.

I love the way "The Falcon" starts slowly and builds to a powerful finish, and the funk of radio-popular (in 1982) "Whiplash". My favorite, without a doubt, is "Wes" - what a beautiful song, a beautiful melody, and great exchanges between Klugh and James as the song closes.

You will not be diappointed with this collection. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob James and Earl Klugh at their Best February 15, 2008
By Paulie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes, Bob James performed the soft and gooey theme for the TV show "Taxi" (known as "Angela (theme from 'Taxi')." Hardly what you'd think of as a virtuoso performance in jazz circles. But in his unbeatable matchup with Earl Klugh (the master behind "Dr. Macumba" and "Cabo Frio"), the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. From the hauntingly delicate strains of their opener ("The Falcon"), through the joyful strains of "Where I Wander," to the brilliant salute to Wes Montgomery (the aptly named finale "Wes"), this team does not fail to impress. This album dates from 1982, but still sounds fresh and sharp after 25+ years. The kind of jazz albums I've always loved invariably had few tracks and lots of improvisation. "Two of a Kind" is no exception to this rule. The total of six tracks makes this an album to run from beginning to end over and over. I have it on mix, but will reformat my player often just to listen to every track when I'm feeling more low-key.
This is a great addition to any jazz library, and I very strongly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Pairing of Two Great Artists. May 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first bought this album (on tape) when it first came out, and now replacing my copy with a this CD. This album was my favorite between the first two albums done by James and Klugh. However, the first album, "One on One", was good, but I believe they produced a better album the second time around together.

Bob James wrote the odd number tracks and Earl Klugh wrote the even number tracks. I find James style kind of music to be obstract, while Klugh has more of a pop style. Because both artists write different syles of music, the pairing of their music makes a nice match that will satisfy just about any jazz listener.

It has been almost 20 years since I last heard this album, but now that I have it on CD, it will played by me in the next 20+ years.
