Review:
"Here is a disc well worth exploring by anyone who likes music. Period. Shannon Scott and Leonard Garrison have put together an enticing recital of gems...and every one of them a winner. INdeed, most of them will linger in the memory well after the CD changer has moved on to the next disc. ...The consummate artistry and polished ensemble playing of the Scott/Garrison Duo as heard on this disc ought to win them many admirers." (Fanfare)

"Larsen's Barn Dances is a rollicking, often whimsical suite...that nicely sets the tone for the rest of the CD–it displays charm and a sense of humor while showcasing the formidable virtuosity both performers seem to have in spades." (The Flutist Quarterly)

"...spirited performances reflective of the intuitive connection and intimate communication between the members of this well-matched pair." (The Clarinet)
