AllMusic Review by

Joe Augustine's first solo piano album on Moulin d'Or is an instrumental offering of some '30s, '40s and '50s sweet and sassy songs. His sophisticated yet playful jazz truly delivers a performance which shows tenderness, emotion and delicate feeling. As an arranger, he is a careful harmonic chef using just the right musical spices to bring out the melody and meaning of a song. As a player, he displays the kind of skill that makes the hardest passages seem easy and natural. This unbeatable combination has resulted in a sparkling recording that will satisfy for years.
