Picking up where they left off with 1995's duet recording Tone Poems II, mandolin master David Grisman and guitar great Martin Taylor blithely saunter through a dozen jazz staples. Taylor's playing boasts a blues-soaked intensity and insouciant fire that isn't normally associated with the willowy and refined soloist, while Grisman showcases a wide variety of adventurous ideas, but at no time do the issues seem forced. The sympathetic and delicate rhythmic support of bassist Jim Kerwin and drummer George Marsh contributes to the air of easygoing delight. Taylor even picks up the mandolin himself on a hidden "keepsake".

This is not (just) a CD for me; it represents the essence of everything that takes place when I create music. There is the fortune of my being able to live music. There is the quintessence of my good luck, as if it were contained inside a precious casket. There is every shade of the magic that is in what I do. Perhaps, it is for this very reason that I like the term that is used to mean CD in English: album.
