Reviews

 

10/08/2015 London Jazz News

The music throughout has a reflective quality, as if the pianists were having a conversation and seeing where it would take them. There are hints of them holding back, a gentle trepidation as if they were leaving some space to allow themselves to think. It is a fine CD.

07/08/2015 Cormac Larkin, The Irish Times 4 stars****

This gentle-spoken dialogue with a talented protege is all you would expect from such a master – thoughtful, explorative, revelatory, mischievous, with nods to his own formative influences, pianist Bill Evans and Taylor’s long-time collaborator, the late trumpeter and composer Kenny Wheeler.

02/08/2015 Rob Adams, Herald Scotland

Duets is emphatically uplifting, with Fairhurst and Taylor giving each other space to develop clear, melodic improvisations that brilliantly capture the dedicatees’ characters and illustrate their own strength of personality in bright, warm, genuinely collaborative and heartfelt music.

'The intention was that the duo sound be as seamless as possible, in which they have succeeded with remarkable success. Their approach is sufficiently spare and restrained to avoid the sound of fistfuls of notes, and the mutual understanding between the two is so good that the flow from one musician to the other is virtually seamless.'

'It's an intelligent, seriously considered project in which the pair have discovered a lot of common ground with which to develop their own personal visions...'

 

09/07/2015 Stephen Graham, Marlbank

'Quite gentle in places, with a captivating calmness to it in its best moments but full of torrid passion where needed, these duets are an unalloyed delight.'
