Just reading on Cuong Vu’s Facebook page about this album due in the next month or so. I’m really looking forward to hearing this, having heard his trio, it has lots of potential.

Bookmark and Share After a few plays, I finally had the chance to really give the CD a listen. I’ll call it conversations with Cuong. Ok, I stole that one from Christian McBride. But what I heard was Cuong and Pat talking to each other. Not like in a "Battle of the Bands" It was a true conversation of phrases with crackling energy, heart, and a back and forth that I found both mesmerizing and intense. We are so fortunate to be around to follow Pat on his always changing musical journey. I can’t wait to hear what will be next!!

Bookmark and Share I just got this yesterday and have listened to the album through twice. I like it a lot , I enjoyed reading the liner notes from both Cuong and Pat . The record really does have the feel of "Pat meets Cuong". I like it a lot it, has an experimental fusion feel to it. If you like this I suggest Cuong’s album "It’s Mostly Residual" , which he recorded with Bill Frisell

Bookmark and Share TerryHickmott: I agree with you. I would say most of the CD is challenging - a little too "out there" for my taste. There are a few songs that I like a lot, and even the more challenging ones have become more enjoyable over time. I know there are many sides to Pat, and some I prefer more than others. Wondering what others think?

Bookmark and Share Even though the tunes from this recording keep playing in my mind non-stop, and I often find myself whistling these songs, it hasn’t made it’s way into my desert island collection :).

Bookmark and Share I was actually expecting it to be more challenging! I’ve only listened to it twice so far but I found it pretty accessible compared to some other things by Cuong Vu. I really like it though, some great atmospheres and as always I love Pats choices of guitar sounds.

Bookmark and Share I’ve received my CD today here in the UK. All I can say is that the music is ’challenging’. I’m looking forward to other opinions.

Bookmark and Share The Vu release should be good. Check out Logan Richardson Shift. Metheny is the band’s guitarist. It’s gotta nice vibe.
