Teddy Wilson Revisits The Goodman Years




This CD (18 tunes; 69 minutes) is a studio recording made in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1980. The CD presents Teddy Wilson at his best, playing tunes he made immortal in the thirties as pianist with clarinetist Benny Goodman. Teddy Wilson is accompanied by Jesper Lundgaard, a Dane who is one of Europe’s top bassists, and the famous drummer Ed Thigpen, who also lives in Denmark. On this CD Wilson displays all the delicacy, elegance, taste, finesse and impeccible rhythm sense that has made him one of the best pianists in jazz.
