Review: This disc is co-led by fusion giants Mike Stern and Jeff Lorber. It features ten tunes which are a mix of originals and reworked vintage. This union is significant in just how well it works. Stern and Lorber both maintain their own identities and, at the same time, venture into each other's worlds with notable success. It is a record that utilizes a purposeful scope of ideas, seems to spend just the right amount of time in or on each one and, in the end, is a distinctive blend of challenge and orbital symmetry.
