AllMusic Review by

Fred Hersch's second CD intended to raise money for HIV/AIDS service, education and prevention programs is well worth the investment. The pianist chose 12 classic songs and accompanied a dozen different talented musicians, including Jim Hall, Kenny Barron, Tom Harrell, Gary Burton, and Janis Siegel, to name a few. All of the music is magical, no matter who is in the studio. The brilliant but modest pianist let the tapes roll without rehearsals or arrangements. Available exclusively through Classical Action by phone.
