This is a wonderful, stir-hearted, and effortlessly virtuosic continue recording by one of the finest living exponents of pre-bop inconsequential-orchestra jazz. With pianist Ray Kennedy and bassist Martin Pizzarelli (and on two songs joined by chorus-member Grover Kemble), crooner and guitarist John Pizzarelli runs through a for the most part lightweight but thoroughly charming set of standards, homages, unconventional stories, and the incidental pattern tune; the quick like a bunny tunes are simple-minded and frothy, the ballads soothing and moderate, and even the moments that are less than definitely inspired travail together with the album«s highlights to imagine a very pleasurable whole. John Pizzarelli has a case radio, which tells you something about what to presume of him as a crooner: his declare is soothing and stir, sacrifice a likeable trust of Chet Baker»s quality and Dean Martin«s fullness; as a guitarist you need to know that he favors seven-be in command guitars and savannah-grieve strings, best him really to a modern Django Reinhardt-meets-Freddie Leafy tender-hearted of rational. As for the trio»s instrumentation, it«s precise that when you can comp with this tender-hearted of word you don»t technically need a drummer. But on a few tracks a drummer would have filled out the band«s rational nicely. Highlights file the group»s fun, reduce glib take on «Frim Fram Sauce» and a remarkable ode to Art Tatum called «Tea for Tatum,» as well as a dainty pattern blues theme titled «Headed Out to Vera«s.» Pizzarelli«s own «Oh, How My Sensibility Beats for You» and «Day I Establish You» are also wonderful. But the album»s standout trace is a limpidly glorious reading of another pattern, «Better Run Before It»s Spring.» Pizzarelli is obviously having a lay waste in the penetrating placement of the storied Birdland league together, and so will any jazz lover who takes the once upon a time to pay attention to. Very favourably recommended. (AllMusic)
