"The way they play reflects the very best of
the current age. [Frautschi and Blacklow] play with strength and
emotional power, but the strength is supple
strength, and the emotional power is extremely 
honest and deals directly with the music at
hand, which they understand very well.'
                   
         - Elaine Fine, American Record Guide, Sept-Oct, 2014

 

“…[Frautschi and Blacklow] really get this music, and because of this they
    
deliver performances with both finesse and passion. 
   Not one phrase goes by without some detail striking the listener,
   and the best part of it is that none of this sounds forced or artificial in feeling.”
