"If you love solo jazz piano, you will dig this album. You'll also swear there are two or three guys playing the piano at once. The recording quality is excellent (recorded in the 1970s on state of the art equipment at the time), so this is no old-timey scratchy music. And boy does Hines swing. This is one of those albums you can listen to 100 times and still hear new licks, new phrases, catch new musical quotes. The man was a virtuoso. I only wish I had gotten to see him perform live--and I saw a lot of the greats (some now passed on) such as Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, Dexter Gordon, Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Dave Brubeck, Bobby Hackett, Joe Pass, Oscar Peterson, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, etc. You simply cannot go wrong with this album. If you don't like it--you'd better check your pulse..."
