I had never heard of this young Canadian pianist until I took a chance and went to his live concert in Maine. What a terrific show! I immediately bought his first three albums (this is the second album)and recently I bought the fourth. All are good, though this and the third album, "No Strings Attached," are my favorites. Kaeshammer is a dynamic pianist, whether playing solo (the first album, "Blue Keys") or in a group. He plays with some fine side men. He loves to play boogie woogie style, but plays well in other jazz styles too. I like his lively renditions of classics on this album (e.g. Caravan, Sweet Georgia Brown, Basin Street Blues), but the newer numbers on his more recent albums are great too. This is fun music, and it will help you get into a good mood. It's some of my favorite cookin' and dishwashin' and cruisin' in the car music!
