On this CD you'll find Tommy Smith & Brian Kellock playing some good old-time standards (see the list above) in a very mellow laid back, no frills recording. Everybody plays beautifully and with plenty of taste, there are no hidden pyrotechnics or very taxing (read - probing, pushing the limits) playing on this CD, it's all down to melody and relaxed swing. I can certainly recommend this CD to those who enjoy hearing two skilled UK musicians playing standards together in such a way that you'll hear they're surely having much fun.
In fact if you know Tommy Smiths playing you'll probably be very nicely surprised to hear him working in such a straight duo situation with Brian Kellock, an exceptional pianist from North of the border.
For those who are interested by good duo playing (in this same style) I can thoroughly recommend the duo recording : Alone Together - Warren Vaché/Bill Charlap, which is a definite 5 star recording.
