Renderings: The Art of The Duo



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.
– Downbeat

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+
– Norman Weinstein, Christian Science Monitor

Spacious and warm, Renderings is truly a work of art.
