Description by

Jamaican-born pianist/organist Don Shirley's place in music has always been unique, lying somewhere between classical and jazz, and his virtuosity was always marveled at by his peers. The first recording features his improvisations based on the mythological story of Orpheus in the Underworld; on the second selection he and his bass player Richard Davis shine on their improvs of popular standards.
