"The peerless musicianship of James and East is as evident as ever, but there’s a less studied, more organic feel to the music. Tracks range from minimalist, bluesy duets to lushly appointed, orchestrated entries like 'Waltz for Judy.' Most of the dynamics stem from the intuitive interplay between James and East, who seem more than content to steer clear of more measured, mainstream arrangements. One especially satisfying surprise is the alternately playful and opulent take on the Willie Nelson-penned standard 'Crazy.' Sung with raw emotion by country star Vince Gill, it serves as a platform for some of James’ sharpest piano work. These jazz masters serve up a wholly rewarding and intimate set that’s at once new and very cool."   – Jeff Tamarkin / M Music & Musicians
