"River Suite shows two artists at a creative peak, conducting a melodic guitar dialogue that at its best attains a zen-like ease that only two masters working in harmony can achieve."

-- The Star-Gazette, Ithica, NY

"...should be heard by anyone interested in what the best in the business can do..."

-- David Duckman; Chicago Times

"...one of those rare acoustic duet albums that guitar purists shouldn't miss."


-- Focus Magazine

"...blew us away!...one of the most exciting guitar albuns we've ever heard."

-- Elderly Instruments Review

"...Rice and Carlini...performing in tandem so well it seems at times as if the music is coming from a single, four-handed individual."
