"Here's an excellent collection of original gems...Kindred Spirits...from self-taught musician Walter Duda. This latest release is, by his own description, "smooth...with a creative edge." This album is musically outstanding and exceptionally well produced. Mr. Duda has enlisted the support of some of New York's finest session players...to give the tunes on this disc a strong, funky groove. Four instrumentals and four vocals will have you coming back for more. Walter Duda's Kindred Spirits is definitely a keeper!"
