Muze PNote On all but two numbers -- the somber "In Memory of Deanne Nichols" and "To My Papa," which are ballad features for the leader -- George Garzone generously uses fellow tenor Joe Lovano as a co-leader throughout his CD. The two talented players blend together quite well (having carved out their own voices from Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson, and other modern stylists), shooting out some fireworks on the title cut, which is based on "Airegin." Of the other more memorable selections, "Have You Met Miss Jones" is given a countermelody worthy of Lennie Tristano, Garzone and Lovano both switch to soprano on the humorously titled "Snow Place Like Home," and they take "In a Sentimental Mood" as a showcase for their two tenors sans rhythm. Although not particularly innovative, this sax summit is easily enjoyable and finds both George Garzone and Joe Lovano in top form. ~ Scott Yanow

Professional Reviews

Down Beat (1/97, p.53)
- 4 Stars - (out of 5)
- "...Part of the fun is contrasting Garzone's and Lovano's approaches to the material, made up largely of Garzone compositions and vehicles for blowing....Listeners who investigate FOUR'S AND TWO'S to hear Lovano will carry away a new or renewed appreciation of Garzone's strengths as well..."

JazzTimes (2/97, p.122)
- "This is an aggressive recording....But the aggressive character lies not so much in aggression as in a joyful refusal to let any element of the music stand unchallenged..."
