AllMusic Review by

Although bassist Rick Jones gets first billing, this set of "conversations" has him and pianist Gary Brunotte playing very much as equals. The two musicians interact closely on a set of jazz standards, playing melodically, quietly, with lyricism and with quick reactions to each other's ideas. High points include "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes," "I Hear a Rhapsody," and "I Love You," but all of the performances are filled with subtle creativity. This small-label release is well worth searching for.
