AllMusic Review by

The title of this Muse release is a bit inaccurate for this is but a single LP (not a two-fer). Actually its name was meant to signify that two giants were teamed up: violinist Stephane Grappelli and pianist Hank Jones. Assisted by bassist Jimmy Woode and drummer Alan Dawson, the duo are in fine form on seven familiar standards and the violinist's "Mellow Grapes." Few surprises occur but this swinging date finds everyone displaying spirit and creativity.
