ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A vocal/guitar duo set by two long time fellow travelers shows that elegance and simpatico can go a long way. It ain't about the fireworks, it's about the purity of the performance and that's what makes this one of those great, low key wonders. When you've got it going on, you've got it going on and this duo is one of the most ripping good new duos to come along. Check it out when your adult listening ears need something new to fill them."
-Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“Petra van Nuis and Andy Brown's interpretations are over-flowing with skill and imagination...On the title track, a lovely ballad whose dreamy lyrics seem tailor made for her vocal talents, van Nuis never fails to support the melody's cadences with her range and endearing clarity...Always mindful of the melody, Brown manages to wrap his rich harmonic style in a unhurried feel that calls to mind the spirit of George Van Eps.”
- Jack Huntley, All About Jazz

“Petra and Andy's new CD is splendid...This duet shows just how well a pair of expert musicians listen to one another. They are worth listening to! Both Petra and Andy get first place in my imagined TALENT DESERVING COSMIC RECOGNITION category!”
-Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives

"This is their first CD done exclusively as a couple. An initial reaction might perhaps be to question: "Isn't this risky?" I can, however, immediately reassure you that this is a beautiful CD. Because both listen to each other very well, their CD is wholly balanced...While sitting by the fireplace with a good drink in hand, I will often insert this CD into my player. Then I will dream..."
-Cor De Pater, Old Jazz Express

“Brown has such a vast repertoire of varied guitar techniques and textures at his command that his ability to choose between them and employ the correct ones with impeccable timing might be his greatest talent of all.... The voice of van Nuis is effervescent, yet refined and classy. There is a sense of sincerity in every note that even that the most jaded of listeners could not fail to hear.”
- Randy Freedman, Chicago Jazz Magazine

“Far Away Places, a sensitive duet recording in an intimate setting is a sparkling gem....This world of innocence, romance and peaceful melodies is carried by van Nuis' honeyed voice and Brown's exceptional old-school guitar support (who needs a rhythm section? - check out his bass lines on Cole Porter's "From This Moment On" - there are bass players who would kill to play that well)....The quaint and clean presentation is utterly charming: in this case it is hip to be square.”
-Brad Walseth, Chicagojazz.net
