One Of The Most Lyrical & Affecting Pianists in Jazz On High Quality 180g Vinyl LP!

Over a career of a half-century and counting, Steve Kuhn has earned renown as one of the most lyrical and affecting pianists in jazz, with an unfailingly beautiful touch and a sophisticated sense of swing. "Steve is an original stylist," points out Dan Morgenstern, director of the Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers. "He's one of the finest pianists out there today." JazzIz magazine described Kuhn's distinctive sound: "Few other pianists, regardless of genre, can tease such an evocative range of timbres from their instrument. Kuhn's lower register is as dark and rich as Belgian chocolate, and his upper register has the light, translucent quality of ice-cold champagne."

Steve Kuhn has made a dozen recent albums for the Venus label. Here Kuhn performs a collection of standards and forgotten gems.

...Kuhn finds new directions in these timeless pieces... It's hard to go wrong by purchasing any Steve Kuhn, and this is among his best dates.
-Ken Dryden, AllMusic
