"mr. jones is one of the most elegant stylists to ever take to the piano bench. he plays with fluid grace that swings gently, revealing the soul of the music presented. here, in a solo context, mr. jones truly shines. there is no distraction from sidemen or other soloists, just the straight ahead playing of mr. jones. he carries us through a set of standards with charm, inventiveness, and a style that evokes ellington but at the same time is informed by bop masters like monk, powell, or herbie nichols. this is a great jazz cd for a quiet evening by candlelight. enjoy!"

"Solo piano and Hank Jones-Need I say more?. Jones's playing is without pretence and true to the essence of musicianship. Listen to his wonderful voicings layered with his trade mark bop runs. My favourite is his solo on Toots Thielemann's waltz "Bluesette". A fantastic album."

"This man has the great influence of Art Tatum and the lines of the best of the best bop players. This recording is really major. You can feel Mr. Jones as he uses colors from the whole pallette of jazz ( especially stride which is my favourite). He even has a senior moment when he goes to the lowered nine instead of the tonic to end one of the tunes. But that just shows how real Hank Jones is. He's in his eighties and still sounds better than all the young cats right now."
