The first thing that leapt to mind here listening to this beautifully gathered duo record was something of the rapport between the late Lyle Mays and Pat Metheny. That scrap of a connection does not always remain but pianist Maria Chiara Argirò and guitarist Jamie Leeming certainly navigate a kind of dreamy pastoral commonality that is both highly melodic and leaves plenty of room for interesting improvisational passages, the two make their work together seem patient and thorough. Tracks include a cover of James Blake's 'Retrograde' where the pair delve more into electronic territory. Dreamy and private ('Fables' captures this aspect of the record especially well) the pair have created something of a precious miniature here. Out on Cavalo records on 16 October.
