MUSIC REVIEW BY Adam Greenburg, All Music Guide

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Stemming from a donation drive for a local jazz club, this compilation deals out an overview of some of the best jazz Seattle has to offer. While the title alludes to the piano as a centerpiece, the album doesn't focus so strongly on it. Every track save one includes an outstanding pianist (Marc Seales, John Hansen, and Dave Peck are among the brightest of the bunch), but they're often overshadowed by some incredible horn players, vocalists, and the occasional bassist and drummer (both posts are held solidly throughout). You'll pick this one up for the piano solos, but keep listening to it for the whole picture.
