This album is an unlikely success. On a set of piano duets by Hank Jones and John Lewis, there is plenty of swing, a liberal dose of good humor and surprisingly uncrowded ensembles. Highpoints of the eight spirited performances include "Stompin' at the Savoy," "Confirmation," "Billie's Bounce" and "I'll Remember April." ~ Scott Yanow
