AllMusic Review by

Teddy Wilson had a wonderful gift for musical paraphrase and melodic symmetry. His light-fingered, mellifluous approach to the piano was unparalleled among his peers. Art Tatum was a virtuoso genius, and Earl Hines was a great practitioner of stride piano stylings, but Wilson's subtle and dynamic playing made his brand of swing especially popular among '30s jazz audiences.

MOMENTS LIKE THIS features classic performances from Chu Berry, Benny Carter, Roy Eldridge, and Ben Webster among others, and many fine vocal selections from Nan Wynn and the great Billie Holiday, including gorgeous renditions of "You Go to My Head," "On the Bumpy Road to Love," "Let's Dream in the Moonlight" and other romantic classics. The band swings with elegance, and Wilson supports each vocalist with the kind of charm and musical insight that few before or after have equaled.
