    If you really pressed me about it, I’d probably cast my vote for the Most Swinging Piano Award as a three way tie between Art Tatum, Nat Cole and Oscar Peterson. They all led successful trios of piano, bass and guitar. And this frolicking, infectious threesome seems to have roots in that musical garden. They even open their program with “Ray Time,” a tribute to Ray Brown, Oscar’s world-renowned bassist; and pianist Miles Black has composed a very “Ray-like” opener. The standards on the album include an infectious “Sweet Georgia Brown”; a version of “If I Love Again,” taken at a slower tempo than the one you remember from Clifford Brown; some sprightly communication on “Pennies From Heaven”; and the closer, a swift “I Got Rhythm.” Among several originals by various group members, I especially liked the fresh, happy flavor of “Broadway and Alma,” and the confident, forward-moving tempo of “Adanac” (try spelling it backwards). And before I forget, these three swinging players are Bill Coon, guitar, Jodi Proznick, bass, and Miles Black, piano. They are continuing an honored piano tradition, and kudos to them for doing it so well. I hope to hear more. – George Fendel, The Jazz Society of Oregon
