AllMusic Review by

Recorded during the same two-day period that resulted in a Fats Waller tribute, this solo recital by pianist Jay McShann finds him playing four swing era standards, three basic blues originals, "Since I Lost My Baby I Almost Lost My Mind" and "'Round Midnight." As usual, McShann drenches the songs he interprets with the blues, while always swinging; his basslines are always a joy.
