"The delicacies created by Beirach and Antonioli are simply extraordinary." Stereoplay Magazine. The themes of the night and dreams, the sky, the air and the wind, as well as love and beauty, provoke another intimate series of conversations between two unique voices. "Varuna" features three never-released Beirach originals, with lyrics by Antonioli, a Scriabin prelude, several songs from the Great American songbook, as well as a suite of free improvisations. Richie Beirach has carved an important place in jazz history with his classically infused modern harmonic approach to the piano, and Laurie Antonioli's entirely unique & creative vocal approach fuses with Beirach to create a highly personal artistic statement. Of their 2005 recording, "The Duo Sessions," Concerto Magazine stated, "The quality of this record is almost unrivaled, and if we were to hear something better we'd have heard the new Ella."
