Due to his work behind the scenes as an accompanist and in the studios, veteran pianist Ellis Larkins has tended to be overlooked. A tasteful and subtle player whose chord voicings are unique, Larkins had a rare opportunity to be heard in a set of unaccompanied solos on this CD. Most of the tunes date from the swing era, and although Larkins is quite melodic (and slower tempos are emphasized), there are some surprises along the way. Highlights include "Howdja Like to Love Me," "Lady Be Good," "Blue Skies," and "Things Ain't What They Used to Be."
