Released in 1999, the debut from this Boston-based duo of Berklee guitar professors was warmly embraced by the national media, including accolades in JazzTimes, 20th Century Guitar, Downbeat, and Vintage Guitar Magazine wrote: "Overall, this is one of the most rewarding jazz albums of the year. Highly recommended". An excerpt from John Abercrombie's liner notes: "Norm's tunes are harmonically sophisticated, rhythmically burning, and totally organized! "Jungle Tune" is a loping 6/8 modalish song, with a melodic, yet virtuosic solo from Norm, and a melodica excursiona from tenor guest, George Garzone. Abby contributes a great unison vocce e basso on this one".
