"Jack and Jill Jazz is a no-holds barred live set of duets in which the couple displays both their impressive improvising abilities and their telepathies interplay. Recorded at a gig near Los Angeles, the music was made even more spontaneous by the fact that neither performer realized that they were being recorded. There was freedom, looseness and lack of pressure. Says Jill, there are no overdubs. Adds Jack; we chose the best of it for the album. The music is very honest, often aggressive and filled with creative surprises. Few voice/guitar duos in jazz history are on the level of Jill Jensen and Jack Grassel. Jack and Jill Jazz is their definitive recording so far."
