Michael Musillami Duo
Peter Madsen, piano
"While Musillami and Madsen have impeccable contemporary credentials, and play their share of slower tempo pieces among the 11 here, they're aiming for something deeper with this recital. Both men know musical history and have technique to spare, but they don't batter your ears with it; they have fun with it. Especially impressive is the guitarist, who operates with a bright, in-your-face tone."
