Wynton Kelly has reached an important milestone in his career as a musician. In the past he has worked with some of the most influential artists in jazz (i.e. Lester Young, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, etc.) and has also paid his dues in the rhythm and blues field as did John Coltrane and Clifford Brown before him. Howeveri, this swinging pianist, who constantly delights jazz musicians and audiences alike with his infectious playing is, in this album, consciously reaching for the ears of an even broader segment of the total audience. ~Album liner notes
