This must be one of Dud's last musical albums before his sad illness robbed him of his divine keyboard skills.Dud works his socks off in this concert, telling jokes between the music, whilst giving us treats of his sublime keyboard skills. As a musician, I have followed Dud's music since the sixties. There are precious few pianists that can play either jazz or concert music at the toss of a coin,the lines of musical snobbery sadly will always divide jazz from the rest of music. Here, Dud shows that musical fusion simply gives us enjoyment. Music can be shaped and bent to make us laugh and cry and Dud does just that.
His orchestral backing supports him nicely and transports us to the sixties and the first version of the film 'Bedazzled'. Cool music from a cool man, I could listen to Dud and the orchestra for hours.
Enjoy this CD for what it is, honest music from a funny man.
