Overview

Violinist Bruce Wethey and flutist Lisa LaCross come from a classical background, having played in a number of symphony orchestras, but their first album together is a pop-jazz effort. The typical categorization would be "jazz", although there seems to be very little improvisation here. The duo -- backed by a rhythm section and, here and there, a string section -- plays a series of light melodies written by Wethey, sometimes performing in tandem, sometimes taking alternate parts or counter-melodies. The effect is consistently light, tuneful, and pleasant. It may be that the real home for such instrumental music is among new age aficionados, although any of the tracks also would work on smooth jazz radio as a change of pace, especially because of the unusual combination of instruments.
