AllMusic Review by

Pianist/singer/composer Eubie Blake (who was 90 years old at the time) is in pretty good shape on this LP, telling stories and playing piano continuously for 37 minutes before an enthusiastic audience. Some of his stories (and playing) might be a bit fanciful, but it is all quite enjoyable. In addition to performing some of his own tunes (including "Tricky Fingers" and "Memories of You"), Blake sounds fine on a James P. Johnson Medley.
