    Liner Note Author: Konrad Heidkamp.
    This is an unusual CD, nine duets taken from nine previous Enja releases. The music varies from modern hard bop to world music with six of the performances having bass and/or piano, two featuring drums and just one (a matchup between trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff and altoist Lee Konitz) with two horns; unfortunately the recording dates are not given for any of this material. Such notables as pianist Abdullah Ibrahim, tenor-saxophonist Joe Henderson (who duets with bassist Wayne Darling), tenors John Tchicai and Jim Pepper, singer Karin Krog (performing a haunting version of "'Round Midnight" and Joe Lovano (on soprano duetting with drummer Ed Blackwell) are heard from on a program dominated by originals. This interesting music serves well as an introduction to these fine artists. ~ Scott Yanow
