Ken Fowser/Behn Gillece
Duotone
Posi-Tone

Tight harmonies on the frontline between co-leaders Ken Fowser on tenor sax and Behn Gillece on vibraphone set the tone for this solid offering. Backed by the reliably swinging rhythm section of pianist Donald Vega, bassist David Wong and drummer Willie Jones III, Fowser and Gillece exhibit their straight-ahead chemistry on urgent swingers like “Overcooked” and “Back to Back,” the sly stroll “Attachment” and the quirky blues “One for G.” The soothing “Bongo” and luminous “In the Twilight” are standout tracks, along with the intimate duet number “Come Around Again,” which resonates with the peacefulness and deep lyricism of Trane’s “Naima.”
