AllMusic Review by

This CD is a bass lover's dream, for it features bass duets by Alain Caron and Michel Donato, with occasional percussion. Caron contributed six songs, Donato brought in two, and the duo also plays "Django" and "A Child Is Born." The interplay between the two bassists (Caron usually plays electric while Donato is mostly on acoustic bass) is the main reason to acquire this disc. Their styles are complementary, they constantly react to each other's ideas, and the results hold one's interest throughout.
