I bought this album after hearing the title track on jazz radio station WBGO. I remember the song from the Broadway show, "Golden Boy," but I had never heard it performed as an instrumental. It stayed with me for days. I purchased the CD and was delighted that the entire album is terrific. The 1940's song, "I Should Care," is dusted off and given a fresh interpretation without losing the sense of longing the song is known for. I'm a big fan of piano jazz. LeDonne is in the same league as Bill Charlap, Oscar Peterson, and Marian McPartland, though perhaps he's not yet as well known. I will look forward eagerly to his upcoming releases.
