Great Piano Trio Jazz...
Robert J. Ament | Ballwin, MO United States | 10/28/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"consisting of four bop standards, a couple of bossa nova treatments, and three others of a different category. "Because You're Mine" dates back to the fifties where it was popularized enough by Mario Lanza that a lot of couples chose it as one of the selections to be played at their exchange of marriage vows. Monty gives a gorgeous treatment of this old tune. The Rolling Stones standard, "I Can't Get No Satisfaction", is a hard swinging arrangement showing Monty's Oscar Peterson influence. "Happy Talk", from "South Pacific", is a familiar tune that hasn't been recorded that often but gets a good workout here by all of the trio.If you can obtain it, this is a fine cd with appeal to Monty Alexander fans or aficionados of straight ahead jazz piano trio."
