Classy and elegant, fun and swinging, this newest release from pianist Mike Strickland is full of musical nostalgia and surprises. All the songs are classic jazz standards, and Mike draws upon his Mississippi roots to give each song its own special arrangement. Sometimes relaxing, sometimes just plain toe-tapping, this recording is sure to please any piano afficionado. And the addition of bassist Clipper Anderson adds so much warmth and vibrancy to the music.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this duo who have been performing together in the Pacific Northwest for the last seven years.
