    Kai Winding says on the back cover of this album: "There's no doubt that Monty Alexander will be exciting audiences and record buyers for many years to come". There's no doubt either that Kai Winding had a great ability to spot a true talent. Monty is still doing what Kai predicted, year after year.
    Les McCann presented this album and you can hear his influence throughout the exciting album. Yet, his own inimitable style is already present here. Alongside Thelonious Monk he's the only pianist my wife recognizes (without showing the album cover) should tell a lot. Truly an enjoyable piano trio album and worth checking out, not only for a historic curiosity as a debut album but as a showcase for very mature approach to the standards and his own compositions.
