The collaboration of these two most accomplished Sydney jazz musicians
has produced an album of excellent musicianship and pristine studio recorded
sound, bringing traditional jazz to a new audience in a fresh setting.

several duets featuring the stunning multi instrumentalist Power, along
with superb pianist Locke to the quartet tracks featuring well known
Sydney players David Seidel - Bass and Anthony Howell - Drums.
