Over a career of Jazz, R&B and crossover recordings, husband and wife duo Tuck & Patti have produced a remarkable amount of music, especially considering that they rely on the textures of only guitar and voice. Having built their reputation on their sublime interpretations of classic songs from all genres, the duo again explores this approach, but this time with a little something extra: The addition of keyboardist and string arranger Frank Martin and cellist Joseph Herbert on four songs. Originally the recording was conceived as a special project intended for release only in Japan and Southeast Asia, however, soon after it was released everyone wanted a copy. "A Gift Of Love" covers album material made famous by the Drifters, Elvis Presley, Billy Joel, Minnie Riperton, Freddie Mercury and many more. Ten tracks in all.
