AllMusic Review by

Recorded live in Toronto in late 1997, this double-disc set finds Jones and his trio in good form on a host of well-worn standards and a few unusual choices (like a nice "Waltzing Matilda"). While Jones' piano approach may be too heavily ornamented for some listeners, with extensive keyboard runs throughout, the music is welcoming rather than distancing. His shortcomings show on more intricate tunes, such as a strained cover of Monk's "Well You Needn't."
