This remarkable audiophile recording pairs together two of jazz’s most legendary players, pianist Bill Evans and harmonica player Toots Thielemans. The duo’s luscious and harmonious performance can be enjoyed on breath-taking covers of Paul Simon’s “I Do It For Your Love” and Michel Legrand’s “The Other Side of Tonight,” as well as on two jazz standards “Body & Soul” and “Blue and Green.” The album would be the final studio recording to feature Evans on electric piano and is a must-have album.

Pianist Bill Evans (who doubles on electric piano on this album for the final time in the recording studio) welcomes guest harmonica player Toots Thielemans and Larry Schneider (on tenor, soprano and alto flute) to an outing with bassist Marc Johnson (making his recording debut with Evans) and drummer Eliot Zigmund. The material contains some surprises (including Paul Simon's "I Do It for Your Love" and Michel Legrand's "The Other Side of Tonight") and only two jazz standards ("Body & Soul" and "Blue and Green") with the latter being the only Evans composition. Excellent if not essential music that Evans generally uplifts.
