Soprano saxophonist Jim Galloway was born in Scotland 1936, emigrated to Canada in the mid-'60s. Jazz cornetist Bob Barnard is one of the most highly regarded jazz musicians ever to come from Australia. Bob and Jim had worked separately with legendary Swiss jazz pianist Henry Chaix and his trio but this was the first time they had all met together on the same stage. Recorded live on October 19, 1997 in Baden, Switzerland.
•"Although they mostly perform swing standards, the music is closer to traditional jazz. Listening to this very coherent and swinging music, it is impressive to note that Barnard and Galloway had never played together before." **** Scott Yanow, allmusic
