Art Tatum appears with his Nat King Cole-inspired trio of Tiny Grimes and Slam Stewart, while Jess Stacy and Mary Lou Williams perform in piano-bass-drum trios. The Mary Lou Williams cuts are of particular interest, as six of her eight tracks are original compositions, some of which are built upon boogie beats.
