AllMusic Review by

Living Era's Handful Of Keys collection features some of the most popular jazz pianists from the '30s and '40s, including Mary Lo Williams, Billy Kyle, and Art Tatum. Duke Ellington contributes two tracks, "Black Beauty" and "Swampy River," as does Earl Hines, who performs "Monday Date" and "I Ain't Got Nobody." Teddy Wilson, Joe Sullivan, Fats Waller, and Bix Beiderbecke are among the other performers on this jazzy, nostalgic album.
