This cd is perhaps Garys' finest cd yet
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This cd will mark the fourth cd that I have purchased by Gary. This alone should tell you something about me. I like Garys' work!For this cd project Gary tackled the Ella Fitzgerald Songbook. What an admirable thing to do. Ella was without question the queen of the American Music Songbook. I have several of her famous cds and they are wonderful.Now for the words of wisdom about this project. Gary has a good solid sound. It appears to me that he uses a lot of flats in his music. His music seems to be very laid back, but highly entertaining. He seems to know how to always hit the right keys on the piano.As for the repertoire, Gary used a lot of highly sucessful tunes that everyone should enjoy. The only downside to this project was that I thought some of the arrangements didn't work. I know from past experience with Garys' work that all tunes that he plays are not good candidates for his style of play. Some tunes are perfect for Gary and others he should try to avoid.In conslusion, like I said earlier, this is probably Garys' finest hour. I think that solo piano fans should buy this cd."
