Reseña de álbum

This 1991 session is one of Walter Bishop, Jr.'s final dates as a leader prior to his death in 1998 and it is well worth acquiring. With bassist Reggie Johnson and drummer Doug Sides on hand, the bop pianist is in top form. A jaunty "Sweet and Lovely" starts the CD with gusto, followed by an intense, rather brisk samba treatment of "Never Let Me Go."

Bishop wrote three of the 12 songs, including the very bluesy "Midnight Blue," the tricky bop piece "Lady Barbara," and "Farmer's Delight," a delightful hard bop vehicle. Recommended.
