Built on a solid friendship, the interplay between Fuller and Oxman really takes the core of this record to another level. Fuller and Oxman, despite sharing an age difference of 25 years or so, play as one spirit. Theirs is a relationship solidified through the trials of illness and death, but the jubilation with which they play stands as vigorous attestation to the power of true friendship.
The live recordings on the second disc feature an extended take of the album's title track and a dazzling rendition of Sonny Rollins' "Tenor Madness." William Eckstine's "I Want to Talk About You" also appears.
Fuller and Co. play with such professional polish on I Will Tell Her that it's hard not to listen with your jaw on the floor. Analysis and examination damn near fall by the wayside when Fuller takes to the trombone and true passion and peace take over. Isn't that the point of it all anyway?
