"Throughout, one is impressed by the nimbleness of Derek's fingers - and his mind. With the virtuosity of Art Tatum, the sophistication of Teddy Wilson, and audacious boppishness of Bud Powell, Derek is a man for all seasons, an artist and entertainer whose musical genius transcends categories. He also possesses the now seemingly rare ability to make his musical points within the compass of three or four minutes. With Derek, less is more! High Energy is a gas!
