Album Review
Reviewed 2013-08-29 
Piano, bass, and drum trio with lots of sophisticated style. A nice mix of modern tunes and revisits to the great American songbook. Each musician is top notch but Stephens’s piano work really shines. This guy is good.

*1. Fast and fiery w/great piano work. A wonderfully complex track.
*2. A classic, dusted off and given a new coat of paint. Mostly mid.
3. A blues tune given a jazz makeover. Relaxed but fluid.
4. Slow and sad classic with a warm and lyrical fragility.
*5. A strong mostly midtempo bluesy walk. Well played by all.
6. Starts slow, picks up, gets chaotically interesting.
*7. Usually a ballad, here updated and turned into a midtempo groove.
*8. Fast and furious keys highlight this layered, uptempo track.
