Jazz, Latin and modern aspects blend artfully together in this gloriously tonal duet. Both instruments have opportunity to shine; moving the listener along with energy and passion.

Percussive Arts Society (USA) ‘Percussive Notes’ review (Darin Olson)
"Whether it is due to the instrumentation, jazz influence, or the uplifting quality, this piece reminds me of the music of Anders Åstrand. Duets for marimba and vibraphone lend themselves well to jazz-influenced compositions. This selection, approximately seven minutes in length, is a good example...Kerryn Joyce does a great job of linking the ideas together. The constant introduction of new elements will captivate audiences."
