What People are saying about Narrow Escape...

 We had the pleasure of hearing Roberta and Jim at a wine tasting last year.  When we were planning our wedding they were the first ones we thought of to play for us.  They were absolutely fantastic and everyone enjoyed them.  We would highly recommend them to play at any event."  - James and Dolores Laurora

"WOOHOO! The CD's have arrived, AND THEY SOUND GREAT! It is amazing that all of that sound is coming from only you and Jim. I liked it the first time that I played it, but the more I play it, the more I like it. It really is GREAT, and I like every song.  It would be hard to pick a favorite.  I like the 'mix' of music that you have with all of the songs sounding different.  Very nicely done, and both you and Jim sound GREAT on the vocals, and the musical accompaniment is AWESOME! Every 'mix' is perfect.  I am looking forward to listening to every song over and over again!  I hope you and Jim sell at least a MILLION copies. " --Pam Stevens, Certified Fitness Instructor 

"I've been listening to the sultry, soulful, inspirational vocals of Roberta Pescow for many years. She is truly a gifted musician. Combined with the musical artistry of Jim, they are not to be missed! Love this musical team... And the journeys of their songs."

"Narrow Escape Duo played at our wedding celebration last year. We requested some of our favorite standards, & they more than rose to the occasion. The two have a wonderful balance & fun rapport onstage, an excellent combination of showmanship & authenticity. We were thrilled, & we heard many compliments from guests as well. We highly recommend them." - Joanna Dalin Sexton & Andrew Sexton

"I was never a fan of jazz. It was a nice genre but held no real appeal for me. That completely changed once I found Narrow Escape Duo's Roberta Pescow and Jim B. These two stunning artists have opened up an amazing new door of auditory joy for me! The varied styles and themes of the songs ensure that in will never get bored with this music! The CD never leaves my car and is always on my iPod! Even my 6 year old loves it! " ~Khrys Turner

"Roberta and Jim are a perfect blend of silky smooth vocals poured over expressive intricate guitar arrangements! Their renditions of popular standards are flawless - evoking the feelings that were intended by the original artists. Their self-penned tunes range from world music life anthems to quirky tongue-n-cheek parodies. If you see that they are playing somewhere in your area - make sure you go see them... it will change you for the better!" - Jeff Penque; singer, guitarist and recording artist with "Jeff & Karen"

"What a wonderful eclectic musical treat you two are! Jazz, folk, broadway, original compositions, and Humor!! The best of everything! We've been fans for several years and it's always such a pleasure to get to hear you. Thanks for bringing smiles to the world through your music!" Avyril & Bear Brady

"Narrow Escape Duo is the kind of music you can sit back and listen to, talk through, sing along, and smile at. They have such a wide and delightful repertoire. Great way to spend a warm summer evening at a cafe or warm up to in a coffee shop or restaurant. They always bring a smile to the faces of their listeners. Keep up the good work, Jim & Roberta! - Avyril"
