This is a great recording featuring pianist Steve Kuhn with Buster Williams on bass and drummer Bill Stewart. Starting with No Problem by Duke Jordan and finishing with Cole Porter's You've Changed, the program of mostly standards is perfect for showcasing the musicianship and elegance of the trio.

Reviews:

The only thing predictable about Steve Kuhn is his unpredictability. On Love Walked In (Sunnyside) he digs playing neglected treasures, such as Duke Jordan's "No Problem"; he will take an overexposed standard, like "Autumn Leaves," and meticulously avoid its melody; he will not only approach the other Duke's "Prelude to a Kiss" as a bossa nova but mischievously infuse its second eight with "'Tis Autumn"; and while you're still pondering that surprise, he confronts Irving Berlin's cornball waltz "All Alone" and morphs it into a way-up, straightahead 4/4. Were it not for Kuhn's dazzling technique and musical intelligence, he might have been outsmarted by Berlin.
