Both Rathbun and Colligan devote themselves to the material, sculpting their improvisations in a way that never overshadows the careful structures and gentle melodies; there’s a profound balance to this recording.
That rare jazz disc that can equally delight both classical-music and jazz fans, a joyous meeting of the minds marked by stirring transitions from neo-classical restraint to jazzy daring. B+
