Sutton is an extraordinary musician who came after what was generally regarded as the classic era of jazz and yet somehow was a part of it, since, as a youngster, he played in Eddie Condon's New York club and with Condon's bands. Wonderfully dextrous, he began his career when he was 20 by playing briefly in Jack Teagarden's big band before he was called into the army. Today he is the leading stride pianist and has been without competition since Willie "The Lion" Smith died. He easily outperforms other practitioners of the art (there aren't many) and like the Lion and James P. Johnson, the span of his music is enormous. In this beautifully recorded recital at the Maybeck Hall in 1993 he had the benefit of a beautiful instrument, far removed from the class of pub and night club pianos that he has worked at over the years. Here he pays tribute to many of his friends and influences with tunes by Fats Waller, the Lion and Bix Beiderbecke. There are also effective workouts on "St. Louis Blues" and Irving Berlin's "Russian Lullaby". --Steve Voce
