Rooted in the jazz piano tradition of the 1920-1940's, this record presents a personal blend made of Harlem "stride" piano style of Fats Waller, James P. Johnson and Willie "The Lion" Smith, of compositions by Duke Ellington, of Teddy Wilson's swing piano style, mixed with more modern be-bop influences. Recorded July 2010 in Paris. Piano: Steinway Concert Grand, model D.
