John Bunch: Piano
Phil Flanigan: Bass
"Before he discovered Bud Powell, as many pianists did in the mid-'40s, John grew up admiring Teddy Wilson and Fats Waller. His marvelous touch and overall grace at the keyboard still reflect the Wilson heritage while the felicitous lines and sophisticated harmonies of bebop continue the Powell influence. He was old enough to appreciate the old masters, young enough to make the transition to the new music of the time, and endowed with the artistic intelligence to forge a cogent expression of his own ... There are ways to swing at virtually any tempo, and Bunch knows them all."
—Ira Gitler (Internationally renowned author, jazz journalist and encyclopedist, author of Jazz Masters of the '40s, and Swing to Bop.)
