AllMusic Review by

Norwegian pianist Morten Gunnar Larsen pays tribute to ragtime and early syncopated jazz on the aptly named Fingerbreaker, which includes pieces by greats such as Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, and Eubie Blake. Larsen's breathtaking dexterity on this solo piano collection recalls his turn in the award-winning off-Broadway musical Jelly Roll Morton, affirming his ability to impress listeners in a number of settings.
