Relax Your Mind is another foray into the capable world of Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, although this time they tote the band Swingology as accompanists through Western swing and string band renditions of various traditional tunes, standards, and a few originals. It is obvious listening to any of the Ungar and Mason releases that the two are about as laid-back as musicians can be while performing, which is a sign of great talent to be sure, and this album is no exception. However, Relax Your Mind doesn't quite stand as tall as the adventurous musical scores the duo became known for but nonetheless is a welcome addition to a stellar catalog. ~ Gregory McIntosh, AllMusic
