DOUBLE BASS DOUBLE VOICE DOWNBEAT REVIEW!

“…a phenomenal concept on paper, but an even greater pleasure for the ears.”

“The songstresses’ harmonies give it a forested depth that, as in every song, reveals hidden messages, layers and textures.”

“Whipple’s robust stops…(his) cool bass line….it’s clear that his bass is as much a vocal presence as Harms and Braden.”

“The album’s highest lights, however, are its three spirituals, which bring out the soulfulness of this project in the most genuine way. “Woke Up This Morning/This Little Light Of Mine” makes for a timely diptych of freedom and hope, and the traded verses of “Traveling Shoes,” combined with Whipple’s tactile percussion, remind us in these politically wavering times of those who braved the bridges too many of us take for granted.”
