The best kept secret in music


""... sizzles with every measure ...""

"...simply sizzles with every measure...captured intimacy at its very essence...a wellspring of pure melodic creation, a rare accomplishment...as bold as a true love that cannot be denied or dismissed... innate telepathy is most astounding...huge heart and soul behind the technical abilities...remarkable...one-of-a-kind in depth, substance and most important, emotion." - Micheal G. Nastos WEMU 89.1FM, Detroit Correspondent, Cadence Magazine

""... reminiscent of ... Bill Evans and Jim Hall ...""

"There’s great tenderness, sensitivity, and grace on this wonderful CD. Though it is all new music, and decidedly more modern, it’s reminiscent of the masterful Bill Evans & Jim Hall duets in its level of musicianship and interplay."
- Bob Moses, jazz and world music legend

""One of the year's top ten album's ...""

"One of the year's top ten albums...Chamber Jazz...Scorcher, belongs in your permanent collection lyrical…can't ...help being drawn in...chemistry so intuitive they might as well be one person...remarkable ephemeral webs of steel...keep you asking "How did they ever think of that?"... like eavesdropping on a personal conversation between two playfully intelligent artists."
- Chuck Graham, Tucson Citizen

"Paul Bley says ..."

"Wow, what a sound, beautiful . . . exquisite texture . . . one of the best duos I’ve heard."
- Paul Bley, jazz piano legend, ECM recording artist

"" ... sheer fun ...""

"Extraordinarily compelling...Boston's jazz scene is made all the richer...rife with talent, musicality, and sheer fun...a stroke of brilliance...poignant sensitivity...unique rapport...great music" - -Katie DeBonville, Northeast Performer

"" ... the secret to the CD's success...""

"...coaxes and caresses, serenades...lush...Contrasting styles: That's the secret to the CD's success...remarkably, the musicians take turns with each role, sometimes in the same song. Great interplay, and lots of surprises revealed with multiple listenings."
- Dan McClenaghan, Allaboutjazz.com

"" ... top-notch entertainment ...""

"...topnotch entertainment and the performances are superb. (Zoffer and Larrabee’s) COURAGE IN CLOSENESS has a lot going for it and it succeeds brilliantly...different...lyrical...fine compositions and inventive performances...a winner. Perfect melodic performances. Highly recommended."
- Lee Prosser, jazzreview.com

""...fat tone and killer chops ...""

"...a duo that fits like hand and glove and all of the tunes are interesting from both a playing and composition standpoint...fat tone and killer chops...together they have a feel that is truly amazing...the tunes are all wonderful..."
- John Heidt, Vintage Guitar Magazine

Tapped for collaborations by jazz legends for their dynamic interplay, they have concertized with masters ranging from Bob Moses and Eddie Harris to the next generation of jazz composers including Luciana Souza and David Gilmore. In New England they have brought their accessible warm spirit to a variety of venues including Cambridge's Regattabar, Zietgiest Gallery and Green St. Grill, the annual Boston Jazz Society Summer Concert at Stonehill College, The Center for Arts in Natick, and Boston's Bill's Bar. As members of the Boston jazz scene they have added their trademark duet texture & compositions to the blues and funk of Stan Strickland, the gospel sounds of George W. Russell, Jr., the straight-ahead swing of Phillipe Crettien, and the lush ballad sounds of Kris Adams.
