Williams' heavy vibrato adds to the mournful theme of "St. James Infirmary" along with Helfer's moving accompaniment. They turn boisterous in their jaunty take of Fats Waller's "Ain't Misbehavin'," as well as their gently swinging approach to "Honeysuckle Rose. Helfer delves into a gospel feeling with his stirring introduction to Percy Mayfield's "Please Send Me Someone to Love.

Duo recordings in jazz and blues can be many things, but these by Helfer and Williams are excellent. There is excitement, intensity, heated soul, smokey ruminations, and a relaxed, 3AM quality to the performances. The playing has an intelligence and elegance that glows in the dark like a smoke ring; and hangs in the air like Man Ray's depiction of Lee Miller's lips. Skinny is a marvelous, 'modern' tenor sax player, who reminds me of David "Fathead" Newman, and Pee Wee Ellis.
