With David Lange (accordion)
and Rene Worst (bass)

An instrumental gem of lush, jazzy, melody-driven compositions from Grammy-winning Mike.

"Mike Dowling, one of our classiest guitar players, has teamed up with his perfect foil, accordionist David Lange, and together they have created a collection that is romantic without pretension, elegant without formality and just plain wonderful. Dowling is also here revealed as a gifted composer of exotic Americana, hip, down-home songs with an otherworldly air. I absolutely love this record. Ry Cooder should cover these songs." -- Ben Sidran
