AllMusic Review by

Pianist Teddy Wilson interprets a dozen songs from the musical Gypsy with his 1959 trio (bassist Arvell Shaw and drummer Bert Dahlender). None of these songs became standards ("Everything's Coming up Roses" and "Let Me Entertain You" came close), but it is interesting to hear Wilson get away from his usual swing repertoire and uplift this music with his sparkling style. This long out-of-print LP is difficult to find.
