Ralph Sutton finally had his turn to perform in the famed Maybeck solo piano series in 1993. The top stride pianist still active in the 1990s, Sutton performs some of his specialties (including "Honeysuckle Rose," "Dinah," and "After You've Gone") and pays tribute to Bix Beiderbecke (performing two of his numbers), Fats Waller, and Willie "The Lion" Smith ("Echoes of Spring"). This recital is as joyful and as hard-swinging as one would hope. ~ Scott Yanow
