AllMusic Review by

From 1944 to December 1947, Teddy Wilson made one superb record after another. A musician who seemed to make every note he played appear effortless, few pianists were his equal. Wilson's playing has been described as urbane, polished, poised, and meticulous, but one thing's for sure: it was always heartfelt.

ISN'T IT ROMANTIC highlights the romantic qualities of Wilson's music and pianistic style. Free of the cold intellectualism prevalent in jazz in the mid- to late- '40s, Wilson's music is hot and unbound, while remaining precise and accurate. Highlights include "These Foolish Things" and "Something I Dreamed Last Night," featuring Kay Penton's sultry vocals.
