an exquisite new duo album from

Geri Allen & Kurt Rosenwinkel

Recorded live in Paris in 2012

“Geri & Kurt — A ‘Lovesome’ Story in Paris”
Allen Morrison, Downbeat

“More than sweet nostalgia, this reset Allen’s high bar on how to be a sympathetic, yet emphatic, partner — whether mixing it up with Ornette Coleman or dancing sweetly, as she does here with the nimble Rosenwinkel”
James Hale, Downbeat “The Hot Box”

“This year the jazz gods have bestowed an early Christmas present upon us
All About Jazz

“They talk, smile, and come together through their instruments, which are an organic part of their existence. Strayhorn, Gershwin and Monk compositions often grow in interlocking layers, sometimes picking up where the other leaves off; Perfect harmony makes two become one.”
Dark Blue Notes

“This document of an evening’s communion with one of [Geri’s] many worthy collaborators reminds us of her disarming and commanding power and, if only for about an hour, brings all that back.”
Larry Blumenfeld, The Wall Street Journal

This 2012 duet concert is simply wonderful

Geri Allen could interpret the entire modern history of jazz piano in her improvisation. Geri’s broad musical intelligence and generosity made her a great connector for me. Not in the algorithmic sense of “If you like this musician, try this one.” Geri’s excellence in performance was a great hearth fire that cast a flickering light in which other musicians glowed.In piano-guitar duos, this album ranks up there with Bill Evans and Jim Hall’s Undercurrent.”
Michelle Mercer, Call and Response

“One of the most beautiful albums of the year.”
