Description

“In listening to this fine set of music by one of America's commanding presences on the piano, I've reminded of a comment by Johnnie Gray, a veteran of the music business and an old friend of Mary's who first met her when he became the bandbov at Cafe Society in the forties, where she was a star. “She'd take that right heel" recalls Gary, “and she'd cock it and start rompin on that floor. And we'd say 'she's in the groove tonight”. Here Mary, playing with great strength and lucidity and swinging in every tempo. is indeed in the groove.”
