Arbors, 2002, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ragtime
O’s Notes: Dick Hyman, Derek Smith and Ralph Sutton gathered in celebration of Bob Haggart. They play the piano solo, duets, all together and with drummer Bobby Rosengarden and the guest of honor, bassist Bob Haggart. They romp with a spirit that you’ll never capture on a player piano but with all of the precision and entertainment value that you could ask for. A master of stride, Sutton and company give the music the ragtime feel. It’s perfect background music for your cocktails with a nice selection of tunes including “Sleep”, “Alligator Crawl” and “Tea For Two”.
