This is one of my all-time favorite CDs...and that's saying something given the size of my jazz CD collection. Jazz musicians talk about the "language" and "vocabulary" of their music. This album proves that conversations can exist in jazz. Listening to Desmond and Mulligan "converse" is like overhearing a discussion between two very good friends. Their conversation covers the spectrum of emotion...at times lively, humourous, pensive, thoughtful. Sometimes they anticipate each others "remarks" playing identical sentences in perfect harmony. I'm thankful that this session was followed by one of equal significance..."Two of a Mind".
