AllMusic Review by

Pianist Lou Stein's first record as a leader in quite a few years is an excellent all-around showcase both for his solo and trio playing (with bassists Jeff Fuller or Brian Torff and drummers Joe Cucuzzo or Todd Strait) and for his composing; in addition to ten standards, there are six Stein originals on this fine CD. Although his daughter, Elise Stein, gets nearly equal billing, she only sings on about a third of the set, leaving the spotlight firmly on the veteran and still very viable pianist. Highlights include "Lullaby of the Leaves," "Deed I Do," "Here's That Rainy Day," and Stein's greatest hit, "East of Suez." A fine outing.
