"Ian Faquini delivers a preternaturally mature recording debut on this collaboration with the captivating Rio de Janeiro vocalist Paula Santoro...The resulting album sounds like the rediscovery of a precious forgotten back page from the Brazilian songbook."

     - Andrew Gilbert, San Jose Mercury News

"Ian is a remarkably gifted composer/guitarist and in Rebecca’s flute his conceptions have the ultimate empathetic blend...The duo is a joy to hear at length, as the mutual respect evident in their artistic kinship and the balance of deep preparation with the unaffected abandon to go wherever the moment leads, to laugh and trust one another, is the very stuff which disarm and free a listener’s mind to be transported and healed." 

    - Pianist Benny Green
