Love Walked In

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
Unsung yet still growing as a premier mainstream stylist, Steve Kuhn has been wowing connoisseurs of jazz piano for some six decades now. A 1998 trio date with bassist Buster Williams and drummer Billy Stewart, Love Walked In finds Kuhn in peak form, wending his way confidently through a set of standards and originals. Kuhn imaginatively reworks tried-and-true tunes, taking the ballad "You've Changed" at a brisk pace, setting "Prelude to a Kiss" to a bossa nova beat, barely touching on the melody of "Autumn Leaves," and even making the old pop hit "Sunny" come alive as a jazz performance.

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
Unsung yet still growing as a premier mainstream stylist, Steve Kuhn has been wowing connoisseurs of jazz piano for some six decades now. A 1998 trio date with bassist Buster Williams and drummer Billy Stewart, Love Walked In finds Kuhn in peak form, wending his way confidently through a set of standards and originals. Kuhn imaginatively reworks tried-and-true tunes, taking the ballad "You've Changed" at a brisk pace, setting "Prelude to a Kiss" to a bossa nova beat, barely touching on the melody of "Autumn Leaves," and even making the old pop hit "Sunny" come alive as a jazz performance. (A smashing rendition of Duke Jordan's seldom-heard "No Problem" is a sweet touch as well.) Williams and Stewart have their moments to shine, yet both seem content to play the perfect support team, girding Kuhn with implacable swing. The pianist reacts with vital and, when called for, lyrical improvising -- the kind of satisfying keyboard work his devotees have come to expect.
All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Pianist Steve Kuhn has played a wide variety of music throughout his career, including his own intriguing originals and collaborations with Sheila Jordan. This set, a straight-ahead swinger with bassist Buster Williams and drummer Bill Stewart, should greatly satisfy bop-oriented jazz fans, for it finds Kuhn coming up with consistently fresh ideas in a conventional but far from exhausted setting. Whether digging into Duke Jordan's "No Problem," "Love Walked In," a passionate version of "Autumn Leaves," or even "Sunny," Kuhn is heard throughout at the top of his game. The presence of Williams and Stewart in supporting but stimulating roles clearly inspired Steve Kuhn, making this an easily recommended date.
