AllMusic Review by

Subtitled "The Harold Arlen Songbook," this 60-minute disc finds the Ralph Sharon Trio -- with Douglas Richeson on bass and Clayton Cameron on drums -- highlighting the work of the most jazz- and blues-oriented of the Broadway and Hollywood composers of the 1940s and '50s. Sharon is typically subtle and swinging, never losing the sense of Arlen's bluesy melodies, but elaborating on them with intricately played figures that never seem to show the effort they must take to achieve.
