Dave McKenna again shows his understated technique, as well as his love of melody from which he seldom strays too far. The audience at the concert was filled with musicians, something which usually happens at his appearances. They always come to hear his wonderful way of phrasing; how he often rewrites the song without losing the melody; his many medleys (he perhaps knows more medleys than any other living pianist today); his marvelous left hand, always unpredictable, ranging from single notes, through full chords and stride and everything in between. Some of the songs he plays here he has recorded before but it really doesn't matter because every time Dave plays a song it is totally different.A change in keys, tempo and phrasing, all of which makes it very exciting to hear Dave play." --Gunnar Jacobsen, Producer and former President of the International Association of Jazz Record Collectors.
