"Stan Seltzer's a great talent on the keys of the piano -- one who's clearly got some high-end training somewhere back in his career, but who also manages to keep things nice and lean in this small combo set!

Stan's got a great command of the piano -- flowing across the keys with a rich understanding of its tones -- and he brings out a sound here that's way more than just simple cocktail tinkling, and which almost has the evocative power of a deeper soundtrack score of the time. Titles include "A Foggy Day", "Crissy's Blues", "Speak Low", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Let's Fall In Love", and "Easy To Love"."
