The youngest of the "Young Lions," pianist Sergio Salvatore was 11 at the time of this recording. However one quickly forgets his age for he plays with surprising maturity, starting off his debut with a thoughtful unaccompanied version of "Like Someone in Love" that sounds like Keith Jarrett in spots; other selections hint more at Chick Corea. Salvatore has good technique but it's his self-restraint on the ballads that is most impressive. The selections (seven of the pianist's originals plus three standards) are both funky and straightahead, and there are solos from vibraphonist Dave Samuels and (on three cuts) Bob Mintzer on tenor, but the remarkable Sergio Salvatore is the main reason to acquire this disc. ~ Scott Yanow
