Light-hearted serious fun!
This album is elegant, understated and totally swinging. Skip Wilkins really bonds with his playing partners. The tunes feel as though they were recorded in one spontaneous and magical take, which may be the case. If you enjoy a piano trio with great communication, a light touch and wonderful classic tunes (including Jobim's haunting Luiza), then you can't go wrong with this CD.
