Her best of the 1970s
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is probably the only full-length exploration of Wilder's music on record, and Marian does it justice. "Jazz Waltz for a Friend" was written by Alec Wilder for McPartland due to their long friendship, and Marian continues to play his material often in her performances. Other memorable tunes include a bouncy version of "I'll Be Around" (compare this to a much more pensive version that concludes "Live at Maybeck" nearly 20 years later), "Where Are the Good Companions?" and "It's So Peaceful in the Country." The sound is a bit dim, but it's a fine disk nevertheless and was originally recorded for Marian's own Halcyon label."

""How blue the skies, Oh, sweet surprise" as Marian McPartland sails into the Wilder blue yonder. Sparkling, evanescent luminosities. Brilliant renditions of some of Alec Wilder's best tunes."
