AllMusic Review by

Roger Kellaway is a brilliant two-handed pianist whose versatile style and strong sense of humor keep him open to idioms ranging from swing to free jazz, pop to classical. On this date, he digs into six standards. "A Time for Love" and "Here's That Rainy Day" drag a bit, but things improve after that, particularly during a mid-tempo "How Deep Is the Ocean" and an adventurous exploration of "Skylark." Ain't Misbehavin' is one of Kellaway's better jazz dates. [A Japanese edition of the CD was also released.]
