"Amenette," named for Ornette Coleman and Neis Cline Singers drummer Scott Amendola, has a bright, Ornette-like folky theme, and "Whispers from Eve" is a country-folk pastoral, which exploits the two players' shared Americana lyricism and their common ground with another jazz-guitar eclectic, Pat Metheny. [...]these are cohesive, integral pieces, as much improvised compositions as compositions with improvisation.
