REVIEWED BY RALPH NOVAK
Hornsby, with his cerebral piano style, and Skaggs, all furious picking, aren't an obvious match. But as it turns out, they complement each other so well they can even make Rick James's "Super Freak" work together. Most of the songs are closer to Skaggs's bluegrass and Hornsby's folk-pop. Best is their version of Hornsby's "Mandolin Rain," on which Skaggs displays his virtuosity on the titular instrument while Hornsby provides evocative accompaniment.
