Teddy Wilson's association with Billie Holiday is legendary; his Brunswick recordings were among the finest small ensemble performances of the 1930s, and from these sessions, the tunes he recorded with Holiday were among the best. This 1972 release features Wilson in a solo piano setting, performing many of the tunes he had originally made popular backing the great singer.
Teddy Wilson's piano style harks back to the early days of jazz, and the great stride piano tradition of Fats Waller, Earl Hines, and others. Wilson's touch, however, is more refined and dynamically varied than his contemporaries'. His music is delicate, light-fingered, and precise. Most of all, it really swings. Highlights here include the carefree "Sugar," and the uptempo sizzler "What a Moon, What a Night, What a Girl."
