Review: “Carol Liebowitz is a specialist in one-on-one improvisation. And we’re not talking about quiet runs through a handful of standards; her duets tend to be collectively improvised, deeply conversational and quite fond of taking risks. Here she records with Birgitta Flick, a German tenor saxophonist, a strongly melodic player whose carefully shaped lines have a wistful lyricism that sometimes verges on melancholy, a sound that balances naturally against Liebowitz’s intricately prodding piano.” - Downbeat
