Sweet-tempered, laid back, small-band swing with vocals a la the King Cole Trio with a bit of Dave Frishberg tossed in. John Pizarelli, the pleasingly old-fashioned and engaging guitarist and singer, is backed up by dad Bucky Pizzarelli, Clark Terry, Dave McKenna, Milt Hinton and Konnie Kay.

Reviews

"John amply demonstrates his flexibility as both an instrumentalist and a singer in 14 tunes that range from quality Tin Pan Alley pops to Ellingtonia...this set will go a long way toward establishing the younger Pizzarelli on a level presently enjoyed by his widely respected father."
