AllMusic Review by

For this intimate jazz set, Eddie Daniels not only plays clarinet on three pieces and bass clarinet on one but flute on seven others, all on duets with guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli. Daniels, who has long since given up the flute, proves to be quite effective on that instrument but it his clarinet workouts (particularly on "As Long as I Live" and a ridiculously fast "Shine") that are most memorable. Pizzarelli, who takes a brief "Two for the Road" as a solo piece, sounds quite comfortable on the diverse material which ranges from swing standards and a bit of classical music to selections by Roland Hanna, Pat Williams and Les McCann. Worth searching for.
