Paul Smith - Liquid Sounds

Paul Smith has long been a technically skilled pianist who technique-wise can play on Oscar Peterson's level. This 10" album features him near the beginning of his career, leading a quintet also including clarinetist Abe Most, Julius Kinsler on flutes, guitarist Tony Rizzi, bassist Sam Cheifetz, and either Alvin Stoller or Irv Cottler on drums. The music alternates between easy listening and small-group swing, with Smith mostly in the forefront throughout. Among the better performances are "My Heart Stood Still," "The Blue Room," "The Lady Is a Tramp," and "Mountain Greenery."
