Review: Fabulous piano trio - solid straight ahead jazz that embraces and encompasses the centennial of jazz piano, even ragtime, as well as hints of classical! Tempos, melodies, and styles merge and flow effortlessly. The trio plays as a powerful unit. It's a live date. Half the tracks are originals.
