"Perhaps most striking is Few's trumpet playing, which manages to be strong, confident, very secure in the high register, and yet does not overpower the softer-voiced bassoon...The Dance from Jazz Suite 2 is a witty ditty that shows Few and Jackson's remarkable virtuosity...Guy Few is a versatile musician whose work as a trumpeter and pianist have earned my praise more than once. I am more impressed than ever, and I hope he continues to record. Ms. Mackie Jackson has a dark, burnished tone and a sensuous way of playing that makes the bassoon seem like a more modern instrument than is often the case. Fine support by Kevin Mallon and the Toronto Chamber Orchestra; excellent sound."

American Record Guide, March / April 2007

"...in a performance as fine as the one recorded here [the Hindemith is] worth a listen... The rhythmic quirkiness and witty lightheartedness of [Bacchanale's] second section make it a fun piece that deserves wider exposure... The disc is filled out with arrangements of two short Shostakovich character pieces that are the highlights of the album. Few and Jackson play with polished tone, immaculate intonation, and infectious high spirits; it's obvious they're having a blast."

All Music Guide, November 2007

"...stunningly beautiful in every way...pure virtuosity by both instruments...gorgeously together and breathtakingly in tune..."
