Steve Allen got together some very fine musicians for this date, and the excellent results show. Ken Peplowski (cl/ts), Glenn Zottola (tp), and Howard Alden (g) all contribute fine work on this CD. The rendition of Allen's "Everyone can see how much I love you" is the highlight here--a beautiful ballad done just right. A most enjoyable CD.

Swingin' stuff, with just the right element of pathos (Tangerine, Body and Soul for early selection tandem). Outstanding sextet. Just enough of Steverino's ivory tinkling to let us know this is his kind of music. Peplowki's clainet and sax, Zottola's trumpet, Alden's guitar, Berghoefer's bass, Capp's drums get a workout. We remember the music from Steve's teevee days (Impossible, This Could Be the Start ....., Gravy Waltz, etc). This hits the spot just as well. Try it, you'll like. A Sinner Kissed An Angel, You Go To My Head, Can't Get Started. Great mood music, yet -- as we said, swingin' stuff that won't overpower you

It shows my age that I remember seeing Steve Allen on TV. I loved his playing then and still do now. We seldom got to hear much of his formidable playing on the TV show. This recording helps rectify that omission.

Steve's original compositions show his knowledge of Jazz harmony, especially like that we hear in classic Jazz standards. In the 1950's this was as hip as harmony could get and still reach any meaningful audience.

Very Advanced pianists may find these tunes a trifle boring. There is not much in the way of "modern" polytonal harmony, modal progressions or strident angular melodies.

These are flowing lyrical melodies over standard progressions.

The other musicians are all top-notch pros too. They play in TUNE and ON TIME. Some of us old farts appreciate those basic bench marks of musical skill over the liberties some modern Jazz musicians take.

Some may object to the slightly "free-for-all" sections that nearly sound like Dixieland (where everyone solos at once.)

Others who like dixieland will LOVE it.

If you like classic 1950's standards with upbeat swing feel, you will love it.

If you like the jazz that came out and was played in the 60's, then this is the CD for you. Take 4 instruments throw in a bass and a set of drums to keep the beat going and you have got some real jazz to keep your foot tapping for the next hour. Plus if you remember seeing Steve Allen doing a number on the Tonight Show in the 60's it is a real walk down memory lane. Even the slow tunes linger in your head for the day until you get back to hear it one more time. Buy this CD you are going to love it.

Steve and some strong sidemen bring a happy little set to us. At times it's a little "Lounge Music" and rehearsed but with some inventive solos. Wonderful clarinet from great Ken Peplowski and Frank Capp (as in the Frank Capp Juggernaut ) drives the group on drums. Overall a nice driving rhythm section and enough diversity to more than satisfy.
