AllMusic Review by

Joe Bushkin's first album was also only the second (or third, depending upon how one counts) album ever released by Atlantic Records. The renowned pop/jazz pianist runs through ten standards -- some of them then only brand new to the repertory, such as "So in Love" by Cole Porter, from the 1948 hit Kiss Me, Kate -- and some of them well-established even at the time, including a success or two of his own in the composition department. In any case, he's in absolutely top form throughout, and it's easy to see -- for those too young to know -- why he was favored by Sinatra, among other top talent of the mid-20th century.
