Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Audio CD
I am reviewing the album and not the value since the asking price for this out-of-print gem is about two hundred bucks at the time of this review. These pop up for sale at more reasonable prices on auction sites and other places.

The reason why I awarded this five stars is mainly because of Paul Smith's incredible piano work. I own a number of his albums and love the way he manages to 'concertize' standards, yet still swing.

Sadly there are no sound samples on this page, but the recording quality is excellent on the CD that I own. Another thing that makes this a five star recording is the rhythm section. Ray Brown on bass should not require an introduction, but if you are new to jazz he was an integral part of the Oscar Peterson Trio, and has recorded with virtually everyone. Drummer Louie Bellson is known for his chops, but also for his ability to play tastefully in smaller ensembles. He is perfect here.

Back to Smith's style that I mentioned above. The tracks on this album are prime examples of that style. Here is the complete track list with starting times for the CD version:
1. The Lady Is a Tramp 00:00
2. Yesterdays 04:24
3. Everything Happens to Me 09:51
4. On a Clear Day 13:27
5. Surrey With the Fringe on Top 17:15
6. My Heart Stood Still 20:38
7. Chicago 26:28
8. Lover 29:58

The total length is 34:44. The album was originally recorded in Los Angeles on March 17 and 18, 1978 for the Discwasher Recordings label and issued as DR 001 DD. If you do happen to be a Paul Smith fan and find this at a decent price I recommend grabbing it. Also, if you do a search on the web for videos and include Smith, Brown, Bellson and Intensive Care in your search criteria you will be rewarded with some tracks with which you can judge the music for yourself.

Have been looking for this LP for over a decade. Just found it today.

It used to be one of my go to albums for testing Audio equipment.

Sound wise and music wise it is 10/10

Not what I thought it would be - wish I could have had a 20 second preview of the song.
