Veteran pianist Jay McShann
has recorded extensively for the Canadian Sackville label, and all of those LPs (most have not yet been reissued on CD) are easily recommended to fans of swing and blues piano. This date matches McShann
in duets with bassist Don Thompson
, interpreting a pair of originals and such standards as "Tuxedo Junction," "Robbins Nest" and "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me." McShann
stretches out longer than usual on the tunes and comes up with plenty of fresh ideas, even on songs he has played a countless number of times.
