Scott Yanow [allmusic.com]

This set of duets by vibraphonist Gary Burton and guitarist Ralph Towner features a logical matchup, since both musicians are open to folk melodies and are generally quiet improvisers. In addition to six Towner originals and Burton's ''Brotherhood,'' the set has thoughtful versions of ''Some Other Time'' and ''Goodbye Pork Pie Hat.'' More tempo and mood variation would have uplifted the otherwise fine music.
