“This program combines varied aspects of American music in a convincing manner. Feldman and Phinney both have a feeling for all of the different elements that make up our background and put them across the footlights well. …such a subtle feeling for the melodies and harmonies of the blues that he had me weeping. …Feldman and Phinney play them with verve and enjoyment.
“Coming after the outgoing Gershwin idiom, I found myself appreciating the ethnic elements in the Barber more than usual. It is played with passion. … This reading is full of rhythmic subtlety and virtuoso playing that these artists express with a rich tone and fine technique.
“…a well-played program. The sound is excellent and, if it were only for the unfamiliar Walker Sonata, it is worth considering.” — D. Moore
