This is the best jazz piano trio treatment of Gershwin that I have heard. In particular "A Foggy Day", with more than a nod to the style of Erroll Garner, really captures the essence of the song, mentally conjuring the images of the title........beautiful....almost painfully so!
For "The Man I Love", the descriptive words that come to mind are elegance and sophistication. Herlin Riley provides the entry for "Our Love Is Here To Stay" which evolves into a low key restrained treatment overall. "Summertime", after an elaborate entry, which includes some fine arco bass work on the part of Reginald Veal, switches tempo with more than just an allusion to Ahmad Jamal's "Poinciana". There's quite an elaboration by Roberts on the verse of "Someone To Watch Over Me". The whole treatment of "It Ain't Necessarily So" is very unique and compelling.

Make no mistake, there is no stride piano treatment here in this music from the thirties. This is a fantastically very contemporary treatment of the works of Gershwin, one of the best jazz trio presentations that I've heard. Robert J. Ament
