This CD reissue has a set of introspective and quiet duets by pianist Richie Beirach and flutist Jeremy Steig. Eight of the ten selections were composed by Beirach while the other two cuts (which sound like free improvisations) are collaborations. In general the music is peaceful with some dissonances. Steig provides long tones while Beirach creates light rhythmic patterns and, although it does not entirely stay at the same emotional level, the music is generally quite dry and uneventful.
