Recorded October 1996 aboard the S/S Norway in various parts of the Caribbean Sea.
Bill Charlap (piano), Gene Bertoncini (guitar), Sean Smith (bass).
Not satisfied with just tackling familiar standards, guitarist Gene Bertoncini's group opens with bassist Sean Smith's captivating ballad "Japanese Maple." The leader's classically flavored arrangement of "My Funny Valentine" is refreshing.
Pianist Bill Charlap rounds out this outstanding trio, whose playing throughout seems to have mesmerized the audience into devoted silence.
