UK Vibe ( Mike Gates )
Listening to this wonderful music, there’s an obvious affinity between the two musicians that simply sparkles with glorious rays of light. Refreshing and engaging, the duo have undoubtedly
honed their skills and ideas over the years, the resulting music recorded here sounding resplendent
Le Monde (Patrick Labesse )
Coulant comme une eau claire, aussi grisant que le souffle du vent ébouriffant un feuillage, voilà un duo accordéon (Jean-Louis Matinier) et guitare (Kevin Seddiki), d’une grâce et d’une précision remarquables.
Goldmine Mag (Mike Greenblatt )
The two spur each other on to heights of improvisation and the creative fusing of disparate elements to create a new whole, a sublime, romantic excursion into the imaginations of these two master musicians. (...)
Let’s hope these two reconvene again because there’s a bit of magic going on here.
Jazz Journal ( Michael Tucker , UK )
From the earliest days of the label, distinctively conceived duets have featured strongly at ECM – and here is another gem to set next to releases by, e.g., Chick Corea and Gary Burton, Art Lande and Jan Garbarek, Ralph Towner and Paolo Fresu.
Peter Rüedi, (Die Weltwoch)
Both partners keep the 'rushing' side of their instrument in check and concentrate on the melodic emphasis. Both are masters of thriftiness in astonishing unison, knowing that every after- and impression is lost if it is not given the appropriate echo chamber. Thus this ambivalent music is occasionally not without beauty drunken pathos, but at the same time wonderfully transparent: a dialogue of great elegance and mutual respect. Shared intelligence and empathy.
