Chris Anderson is a legendary and, until the mid-1990s, underdocumented veteran pianist. In his mid-70s at the time of this set, he collaborates with Sabina Sciubba, a pop singer from Germany who was in her mid-20s and had always loved jazz. Sciubba shows on this set of standards that she is quite capable of swinging and of adding her own personality to the older songs. With fine backup provided by bassist David Williams and drummer Billy Higgins, the singer sounds haunting yet respectful on such tunes as "The More I See You," "My Romance," "Estate" and "Ain't Misbehavin.'" Anderson, a particularly talented accompanist, additionally has a couple instrumentals as features. Tasteful and subtle music.
