AllMusic Review by

Ray Bryant (who is joined for this set by bassist Ray Drummond and drummer Winard Harper) pays tribute to 11 of his favorite pianists by playing a song apiece associated with Duke Ellington, Ramsey Lewis, Dave Brubeck, Horace Silver, Vince Guaraldi, Count Basie, Thelonious Monk, Bobby Timmons, Kenny Barron, Randy Weston and Joe Zawinul. Bryant's timeless style lends itself well to such songs as "The Duke," "Doodlin'," "Moanin'," and even "The 'In' Crowd" and "Birdland."
