Stride at its Best
ddembicki | Novi, MI USA | 08/06/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD gives you a varied sampling of stride piano by a truly fine performer. Wellstood plays with authority, especially his left hand, as he effortlessly walks through the James P. Johnson numbers "Carolina Shout" and "Snowy Morning Blues". For players who want to really hear the nuance, the recording style (concert hall - far mike) is a constant annoyance. Would love to hear these pieces in a close mike recording to marvel even more at the talents of the performer."

"Another great performance by the legendary Dick Wellstood.
As an intro: to Ragtime/Stride Piano at its total best I cannot think of a better exponent of the art.
Sadly, Dick Wellstood is no longer with us, BUT this CD is!!"
Eclectic and wonderful

"I share the other reviewers' enthusiasm for this one. Note that the acoustic is unusual for a jazz record - a concert hall recording with lots of room ambience, not the "close-up" style of most solo piano disks. Dick Wellstood was above all a smart player, who held firm to his roots in traditional jazz piano while listening to and absorbing everything that came after. This is a definitive statement from a player who died too young and was recorded too infrequently."
