Getz’s reputed elegance would seem to be at odds with Peterson’s headlong rush of notes. And yet it doesn’t at all sound that way. When talking about this record everyone talks about the ballad medley, because that’s the only Getz they’re primed to hear. Flick to the end, and ‘Tour’s End’, ‘Bronx Blues’ and ‘Blues for Herky’ and the picture is very different. That’s when you start to hear the stomping tenor man behind the labels.”- PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ
“Even though summit meetings don’t always end up with the expected results, this one, on the contrary, marks the blend of one of the most beautiful saxophone sounds in history with the most dazzling bouquets of notes ever imagined on a piano keyboard.” - JAZZ MAGAZINE
