Album Notes
DUOTONES is a musical collaboration with Tony’s upright bass and Saundra’s voice. They selected a mixture of music that has a swinging funky and Latin sound, but also addresses the human condition. They both believe there is power in the message of this music which represents their musical similarities with overlapping colors and textures for a kind of, Duotone.

Great Music!
To simply say this another "Jazz" album would be a travesty. This album trancends jazz, it truly is world music. Tony and Saundra have woven a musical tapestry so to speak. The selection of songs combined with Saundra's soothing, sometimes haunting vocals are the perfect complement to Tony's bass. The album begins with one of my favorite jazz songs of all time, Autumn in New York. For any native New Yorker living elsewhere, this version will definitely invoke a sense of melancholy. The song selection just continues to get better from there. From the thought provoking Good Bye Pork Pie Hat to the uplifting Waking you are guaranteed to find something on this album that appeals to your musical senses.
In the famous words of Duke Ellington, "there are simply two types of music, good music and the other kind." This album definitely surpasses good. Tony and Saundra have knocked it out the park with this endeavor and hopefully this will gain them the wider audience they so truly deserve.

Solid Set of Tunes
DUOTONES is a very solid set of tunes that combines the vocal talents of Sandra Silliman and bassist Tony Cimorosi. There is a great musical synergy between Sandra and Tony. My favorite cut is the Charles Mingus classic “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat”. Instrumentally, the song has a rich, full accompaniment from the bass that complements Sandra Silliman’s vocal track perfectly.

Listening to this brilliantly talented duo, Tony and Saundra, on their latest cd Duotones is a feast for the musical soul. The combinations of Tony's bass and Saundra's vocals range from sultry and smooth to powerful and uplifting--and for me are a total immersion in deliciousness. I was first mesmerized by them in live concert and was equally moved by this cd. As a relative newcomer to this cooler-than-cool jazz, Tony and Saundra's music has made me a fan.

Excellent vibes!
These are excellent arrangements of many classic jazz pieces. I admit it's the first album I've listened to that features a bass / vocal duet, but I was not disappointed. The bass counters her melody with a swingin' groove and manages to keep its musicality, filling a surprising harmonic range while still keeping you rooted in the groove. Saundra's vocals are outright fantastic- you won't find much better jazz vocals anywhere. She sounds confident and nails every note with power.
Overall, I believe it can be enjoyed by both jazz enthusiasts as well as listeners seeking a mood ambiance.
