For those who like to hear Teddy Wilson alone at the piano, working his pristine and gently swinging way around the keys, this Classics CD should be a wonderful find. The disc spotlights Wilson on several solo sides like "Cheek to Cheek," "All of Me," and his own "Sunny Morning." In addition to the solo material, there's a healthy chunk of combo recordings featuring trumpeter Buck Clayton and tenor saxophonists Don Byas and Charlie Ventura. And as a nice surprise, there are even a few cuts here with a young Sarah Vaughan at the microphone. A very enjoyable collection best suited to the Wilson faithful.
