A talented Swedish pianist, Jan Lundgren has on various occasions showed that he is quite versatile. On this two-CD set, Lundgren sticks to bebop, playing in a style influenced by Bud Powell but filled with his own individual approach. Recorded live at Los Angeles' famed Jazz Bakery in a trio with bassist Chuck Berghofer and drummer Joe La Barbera, the 20 selections were all performed on the same night. Despite being first takes, there are no obvious missteps and the music is quite impeccable. Lundgren revives a variety of bop-oriented songs (mostly from the 1940s and '50s and ranging from Tadd Dameron to Randy Weston and Horace Silver), swings hard, and never runs out of melodic ideas. It is a particularly impressive outing and one of Jan Lundgren's finest recordings to date.
