ÒJohnny Varro has been such a consistent pianist ever since his career began in earnest when he joined Bobby HackettÕs band in 1953 that it is easy to take him for granted. As with one of his influences, Teddy Wilson, Varro gives one the impression that he never played a wrong note, a tasteless phrase or a hesitant chorus. Johnny Varro is very happy with the music that resulted from this project and listeners will have no problem enjoying each of the 15 performances, whether it is solo, duet, trio or quartet. Johnny Varro, as usual, excels in every format.Ó Scott Yanow, has penned over 500 liner notes and is the author of nine jazz books including Trumpet Kings, Swing, Classic Jazz, Jazz On Film and Jazz On Record 1917-76
