Guitarist Herb Ellis and pianist Ross Tompkins perform nine standards on this duet set with the emphasis on light tasteful swinging and ballads. The melodic results are pleasant but sometimes a touch dull and generally lacking in excitement or any real surprises. None of the songs (which include "Someday My Prince Will Come," "You Stepped Out of a Dream," "A Child Is Born" and "The More I See You") have exactly been underplayed through the years.
