In the post-war years, both artists stepped center stage and carved out individual careers that earned them a permanent spot at the top. Yet, in the mid Seventies, these two masters formed a musical liaison that yielded glorious teamwork with delightful regularity. Their concerts were first captured on record by Concord Records in 1982, and a fine vintage that was, but this 1990 crop of collaborations has an even richer bouquet. Of course, Torme and Shearing have long reached full maturity, but, remarkably, they continue to stay mellow.

If you have memories of World War II from the Allied side of the fence, this set will stir them up. And if all that was before your time, or beyond your earshot, you may miss out on the nostalgia, but the performances of Torme, Shearing, Neil Swainson and Donny Osborne is richly rewarding now and for years to come.

This album was recorded in Saratoga, CA, on September 2 & 3, 1990.
