"May be Dave's best offering. Exceptional solo piano from start to finish. Like fine wine, Mr. McKenna keeps getting better."
The BEST solo pianist at his best.

"Dave McKenna is the best solo pianist around, bar none. I hope the guy lives forever, but when he does eventually leave us his left hand should be placed in a museum somewhere, because no-one else can supply the beat, basslines, and guitar-strumming effects that McKenna does. 'Easy Street' is one of his most entertaining sets, and 'On the Street Where You Live' in particular is a classic. Even Oscar Peterson, backed by Ray Brown and Herb Ellis, never swung as hard as Dave does on this track."
Something new each time

"Put simply, this is a great CD. If you're not sure about which jazz piano CD to buy as a gift for a friend or maybe for yourself, make the decision easy - buy two of this one. Give one away, keep one for yourself, and listen to it a few times. You'll find something new each time. Dave's sytle is so rich, fluid, swinging, musical, and fast, that you just can't hear it all in one go. Incredibly, it sometimes sounds as if there are four hands playing. At others you simply can't take your ears off of his amazing swinging bass lines. Then all of a sudden he surprises you by seemlessly dropping in a few lush chords, then goes back to the swinging line, all the while jsmming with the right hand. It's just great music."
