Teddy Wilson and His Piano - I Got Rhythm

Teddy Wilson's got plenty of rhythm here, thanks to support from bassist Gene Ramey and drummer Jo Jones — both players who help the album swing a bit more than some of Wilson's mellower sets of the 50s ! As usual, Teddy's got a completely unique touch on the keys of the piano — fluid and warm, yet never in a sleepy sort of way — always creatively picking out just the right path through a melody, one that hangs onto the tune, yet still lets Wilson leave plenty of his own mark on the songs as well.

Both Teddy Wilson LPs are truly timeless: I practically know these by heart - so I did not download them as I have had them for decades. But yet another opportunity to thank you for making this wonderful music even better known !

i am going to share this one with the young ones. luckily, there are a lot of them interested in good music, from girls of 7 years old (my grandaugther, just hooked up on a 1/2-size acoustic guitar), up to late-teens (son of a friend of mine, now a a winner of several int'l piano and composition contests), and in their 20s (my own daughter, who is one of europe's most promising violin talents), theyy are all taking the world of music up to the next stage. Thanks so much for your precious effort, dear MM.

... and there are ((were) two guys, who'd probably appreciate Teddy's keyboard strokes - Glenn Gould, and Daniil Trifonov, were the exposed to Teddy's music...
