"This is John's first recording as far as I know. I turned on to him from noticing his playing on some of Mel Torme's recordings.His playing doesn't evoke any particular influences in my mind.... except on some of the light fills where I remmember some Teddy Wilson recordings who was as smooth as riding in a Cadillac. He's very much at home in mainstream, very talented, and thoroughly listenable.The cd has 2 trio cuts, 2 quartet cuts(guitarist Emily Remler), one quintet (Remler + trumpeter Joe Wilder), and five solos.I recommend this cd to anyone who likes one or a combination of good piano, mainstream, small groups or anyone familiar with John Colianni or as an intro to his playing."
