AllMusic Review by

For a change of pace, adventurous pianist Steve Kuhn performed a dozen standards (mostly at slower tempos) on this New World release. Half of the selections are duets with bassist Harvie Swartz, while the other songs are unaccompanied piano solos. In addition to such notable tunes as "Body and Soul," "Danny Boy," "'Round Midnight," and "Lover Man," Kuhn cooks a bit on Sonny Rollins' "Airegin." An excellent outing.
