These two regular playing partners share an interest in combining the sounds of traditional music with more contemporary lyrics and songwriting styles. They are, in fact, so compatible that in one case they are able to create a suite by combining a song by each of them, and the music flows effortlessly. As songwriters, some listeners might want to give Kahn the winning nod; his lyrics are sharper on the political songs while his partner seems more drawn toward comfortable settings and smooth edges. Perhaps this is a byproduct of his many performances and recordings aimed at children. Musical backgrounds are capable and sound good, if a bit polite.
