    Probably my favourite collection of all times. Almost every number makes me smile with delight - Pascal Wetzel's transcriptions are luscious - wish I could find more from him. I leave the piano with a grin on my face and goosebumps on my arm. I only play Brubeck, McPartland and Evans...

    now after about 50 years of classical playing. Didn't do a lot of grinning with Mozart or Beethoven...
