Dreambox, 2007, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: This solo recording was Skip’s way of introducing himself to the community at Lafayette College when he joined the faculty during 2000. It’s a strong performance including several different genres both originals and standards. It serves well as entertainment either in the background or for serious listening. Wilkins traverses the keys softly at times and then with fervor but always extracting good vibrations. The recording lay dormant for years as his collaborative efforts with his quintet yielded two albums. When Skip decided to record a solo CD, he realized he already had a gem and we’re glad he looked back! This one is very good.
