Entertainment Reviews:

JazzTimes - 5/00, p.128
"...[Eddie's] guitar playing is fleet and understood. His soloing is inflected with wit...[and] irresistible swing. Mad is a multi-saxophonist and flutist whose work has substantial traces of Getz and Hank Mobley...and, most important, a distinct personality..."

Eddie Duran returns to the recording wars with a refreshingly retooled sound -- this time as co-leader with his wife, saxophonist/flutist Madaline "Mad" Duran. By this time, perhaps partially influenced by his wife being a reed player, Duran was tuning his guitar as a B-flat instrument, and this results in a heavier electric sound that gives these tracks a unique texture when he plays rhythm. Mad is a capable bopster on soprano, alto and tenor, and she handles the flute with a breathy tone. On some tracks, Mad and Eddie make a perfectly satisfying music just as a duo, while on most, they use either a bop rhythm section or a welcome return to the Latin and bossa nova rhythms that influenced Duran in the '60s ("Symphony Sid Samba" is especially nice). They make a seamless transition between "My Favorite Things" and "Take Five" - both played in 5/4 time - deliver a rhythmically off-kilter "Don't Be That Way," and a light-flavored Latin number "Quesadillas" is credited to the pair as -- yes -- Duran-Duran. This album was originally released on their custom Mad Eddie label and picked up by Milestone in 1999. ~ Richard S. Ginell
