Kaleidoscope Review

by Scott Yanow

The talented but underrated pianist Bill Mays is heard with Dick Oatts (on tenor, soprano and flute), guitarist Peter Sprague, bassist Harvie Swartz and drummer Jeff Hirshfield in a variety of settings throughout a consistently stimulating modern mainstream CD. Mays performs five standards (including "When the Sun Comes Out" and a lyrical rendition of "My Man's Gone Now"), along with four of his diverse originals, with creativity on this excellent outing.
