“The apotheosis of jazz’s high wire acts, the duet, is presented here by two masters, pianist Robert Kaddouch and bassist Gary Peacock on these two albums. The moods are similar, but the variant selections set them apart.
High Line is made up of seven originals, ranging from 2 to over 10 minutes. The moods change from song to song, with Kaddouch lurking on ‘Snowline’ with a rich use of space on ‘Gary’s Line’ and the easy and relaxed swing on ‘I Blues’. Some conversational interplay on the rich ‘Skyline’ and suave bop on ‘MS1014’ make this a soft and sensuous pleasure.”
