Teddy Wilson had a wonderful gift for musical paraphrase and melodic symmetry. His light-fingered approach to the piano made him unparalleled among his peers. Art Tatum was a technical genius, and Earl Hines was a great practitioner of stride piano stylings, but Wilson's subtle and dynamic approach made his brand of swing especially popular among audiences.
This budget CD is made up of two sessions from Wilson's later years. The first 10 tracks were recorded in France in 1976 with a trio consisting of Milt Hinton on double bass and Oliver Jackson on drums, while the final six tracks come from a 1982 concert with the Benny Goodman Quartet. While past their prime, Wilson and Goodman really shine on the latter portion of the disc and Wilson in particular retains the same charm and virtuosity that had made him a jazz icon so many years earlier. Highlights include "Don't Be That Way" played with the trio, and "After You've Gone" played with the Goodman band.
