CD Reviews

Ron brings new warmth and feeling to ragtime standards!
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Ain't Misbehavin" continues the excellence that has made Ron Merritt one of American's truly fine pianists. His unique styling makes this a recording which will be played again and again. When I first learned of the selections on this album, I had misgivings. Ron has established a reputation as a wonderful player of slower, romantic music. Quite frankly, I was doubtful he could maintain his high standards with tunes such as St. Louis Blues and On the Sunny Side of the Street. All it took to eliminate any concern I had was to listen to the recording just once. Ron Merritt can play up-tempo music! He brings new warmth and feeling to this collection of mostly ragtime standards. Ably assisted by the acoustic bass of Dave Marotta, this music requires no vocals. As with Ron's other recordings, the piano itself seems to sing the words. "Ain't Misbehavin" will expose listeners to a somewhat different Ron Merritt. The material is different, but the quality of the performance is the same as usual--absolutely outstanding!"

"I have this new CD and love it. It is a must for music lovers for a walk back in time with some of the top hits of days gone by. '"AIN'T MISBEHAVIN" will without a doubt become one of the greatest hits of all time. RON MERRITT'S music is addictive and he will no doubt be one of the greatest entertainers of our time. He is a talented young man and fine entertainer. I love all of his selections."

"I just received this from my cousin in CA. and I've tried to purchase it in the Western NY area with no success. It is truly a tremendous CD - I played it 3 or 4 times on Father's Day for my Dad and he enjoyed every minute - a real trip down memory lane - thanks for hours of enjoyment!!"
