AllMusic Review by

The Chicago jazz duo of the vocalist Typhanie Monique and the guitarist Neal Alger performs an eclectic set of well-chosen standards on its second release, aided by well-known sidemen such as the Dave Weckl band's bassist Tom Kennedy, the percussionist Ernie Adams, and the Brazilian guitarist and singer Paulinho Garcia. As well as the word-jazz of its version of Duke Ellington's "Caravan," the duo also performs downbeat readings of pop classics such as Sting's "If You Love Somebody (Set Them Free)," Annie Lennox's "Wonderful," and the Jackson 5's "Never Can Say Goodbye."
