Pianist/vocalist Jay McShann was having a full-fledged comeback at the time of this Sackville date, which has been reissued on CD. Teamed with Jim Galloway (who doubles on soprano and baritone), bassist Don Thompson and drummer Terry Clarke, McShann is in a particularly good mood on such standards as "When I Grow Too Old to Dream," "Red Sails in the Sunset" and even "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever." This set gives one a good sampling of Jay McShann's timeless playing.
