Album Review

Long a major force in the Los Angeles studios as a pianist, arranger, composer, and producer, Mike Melvoin fortunately also finds time to play jazz and make occasional records. You Know was recorded at his home with two greats from Los Angeles: bassist Tony Dumas and drummer Ralph Penland. They explore a variety of standards, including "Blue Skies," a version of "Giant Steps" that hints in spots at "Stompin' at the Savoy," and a sly rendition of "Exactly Like You," plus five Melvoin originals. The music is straight-ahead boppish modern mainstream jazz. An excellent outing.

Customer Reviews

One of the best

Mike Melvoin is one of the best piano players to date, very unheard of yet he still makes the best music around. Ive seen him twice in New York and each time has been a blast!! such warmth and musical talent!!! definitly a buy each song has its own voice and signature. Mike is not alone both the bass and drums are stellar and add depth and tone.!! buy this album, trust me.
