Midwest Record

Goldstone picks some super pleaser material but goes out on a limb for a varied program that takes you back a century or so for some fun, atavistic listening that sounds right in the moment but sounds modern as well. With his duet partner bringing the other two hands to the fore, this is a snazzy classical/crossover date that’s expertly played and a gasser to listen to. Too heady to be simply cocktail music, it’s best enjoyed in your fave easy chair away from the maddening crowd. Well done.
