Larry Goldings and Harry Allen form a stylish partnership in this new record that features some gem-like standard interpretations alongside beautiful, melodic, new compositions.
Harry Allen's effortless phrasing meets Larry Goldings' impeccable piano playing, with a gorgeous Vince Mendoza string arrangement of Goldings' composition "Benny's Dream" performed by the Metropole Orkest.
Best known as a leading jazz organist, this is Goldings' first record to predominantly feature him as a pianist since 2006's "Quartet." Drummer Andy Watson (from Jon Hendricks' band) joins the fun. Bassists Doug Weiss (Chris Potter/Al Foster) and Neal Miner (Jane Monheit/Stacey Kent) trade duties on various tracks.
