Pianist Teddy Wilson began putting out records under his own name in 1934 and soon became internationally famous through his collaborations with Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, and Lester Young. Storyville's 2007 release of a live trio date in Copenhagen Denmark demonstrates Wilson's enduring artistic integrity later in life. On May 21, 1979 — which would have been Fats Waller's 75th birthday — 66-year-old Wilson performed with bassist Hugo Rasmussen and drummer Ed Thigpen, opening the set with a series of themes composed or made famous by Waller (tracks one through three). After a spirited six-minute romp through the landscape of W.C. Handy's "St. Louis Blues," Wilson concentrated upon melodies by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn for about a quarter of an hour and polished off eight more jazz standards before calling it quits. This is an example of Teddy Wilson on an exceptionally good night, and is highly recommended for listeners of every persuasion.
