‘Smooth and soulful jazz from this talented duo. …listening to Fullerton's warm, breathy voice is like being dipped in melted dark chocolate, Hargreaves' blues guitar is mesmerising, he plays with fluid energy, his husky voice complements hers…. creating infectiously rhythmic percussion out of their own instruments, their easy enthusiasm makes this gig a soothing, sonic pleasure.’
