The popular pianist Peter Nero made his debut on this Mode LP under his original name, Bernie Nerow, a session which has been reissued on the V.S.O.P. label. Strangely enough, the new release says nothing about Nero and Nerow being the same person. This is one of the pianist's better jazz dates, an exploration of seven standards and two of his originals including the rather cute "Scratch My Bach." Bassist Max Wayne and drummer Dick Stein help out Nero(w), and the results can be enjoyed by bop fans who would not normally think of buying Peter Nero records.
