Bobby Naughton, vibes James Emery, guitar Wes Brown, bass Cleve Pozar, drums, marimba Recorded March 17, 1979 Engineer: Jack Jones RBY Studio Southbury, Connecticut 'Naughton is something else. I did not know the instrument (vibes) is capable of THAT many nuances of color and phrasing and time-bending.' Nat Hentoff, New York Times 'Naughton is perhaps the only vibist of originality besides Berger, Burton, Jackson and Hutcherson.' Jazz Journal 'One of the 10 best records of 1979' Bob Blumenthal, Boston Phoenix ... Two long duets are even more impressive. On 'Duality,' Pozar switches to marimba and reminds us what a rare musician he is. The sonic and lyrical balance on this track is inspired, as the two mallet players joyously stack melodies on top of each other. 'Laccaroe Feakle,' by Naughton and Emery, laces unisons and improvisations, duo and solo statements, morose and agitated tempos. Emery, with active lines and a stinging tone, is a revelation here and throughout; in terms of both control and imagination he far surpasses his work on Bobo Shaw's recent Junk Trap. Bob Blumenthal, Boston Phoenix.
