Partners in Crime

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Partners in Crime is a partnership between three leaders: guitarist Jim Hershman, keyboardist Bill Cunliffe, and drummer Jeff Hamilton. It becomes quickly apparent that the three musicians have no need to show off, but instead finesse the listener's attention in a subtle manner.

This enjoyable session definitely merits a follow-up recording.
