This recording is Canadian jazz artist Rufus Lin’s latest solo jazz piano album, a fresh interpretation of great standards from the 1930s and 1940s.
With 16 gently swinging extemporizations of mostly love songs of the day, and the relaxed, unassuming setting, this music will appeal simultaneously to those who appreciate the mental stimulation of complex musicality, and those who just want soothing background music not requiring too much hard work intellectually. Piano jjazz is uniquely positioned to satisfy both camps.
