An absolutely beautiful album of sweet, gentle tunes, masterfully played by one of the most gifted pianists around today. Don't be put off by the words "sweet" and "gentle." These are powerful ideas, succinctly written, and played with authority. This is the kind of album you'll be playing in the background, and, at some point, your guest will say, "This is nice. What is this?" Over the years, this has grown to be one of my favorites, and it very well might become one of yours, too.
