The duo of Gloria Reuben and Marty Ashby have just released their new collaboration titled "For All We Know." It features ten songs that cover the many highs and lows of a loving relationships. Gloria may be best known for her role on television as Jeanie Boulet on the hit show "ER." Gloria also sang back-up for the great Tina Turner, before releasing her first solo album in 2007. Marty Ashby is a well-known jazz music producer and guitarist, who has recorded over 2,000 live and studio recordings for the MCG Jazz label.

The album begins with the swinging, subtle groove of "I'll Close My Eyes," before slowing down for the emotional delivery of "A Time For Love." The melodies quietly find their way to your heart, as you listen intently to the careful steps of "For All We Know" and Gloria's vocals paint the perfect picture with the words of "The People That You Never Get To Love." They finish their new album with quietly asking the enduring question of "Where Do You Start? and the bright, light-hearted feel of "Sing My Heart."
