5 Stars
A fitting addition to Apollo Stompers catalog
This album is very much in the vein of the prior 2 Apollo Stompers releases from the 1980s. This one features Mr. Byard more prominently, especially in the standout track "More Than You Know," where he dissects the melody and refracts it through a beautiful prism of ideas (it remains a shame that the soundtrack from "The Fabulous Baker Boys" omits Michelle Pfeiffer's excellent versions (which stopped the movie)). There are many ideas and moods compressed into the 14 tracks, some of which are in medley format. The arrangements are first rate and everyone gets a moment or two to shine. This was a pleasant surprise to come across as I always felt the Apollo Stompers 2 CDs were not enough, and it represents a fitting sendoff for Mr. Byard who died much too soon.
