Baby Plays Around by Curtis Stigers

BABY PLAYS AROUND, featuring Curtis Stigers, is a nice entry into the jazz arena; very well-crafted, very enjoyable. Pianist Larry Goldings brings his innovative touch to the accompaniment.

Some of the classic jazz standards featured on this collection includes Gershwin's "But Not For Me," one of the nicest versions around; "Baby Plays Around;" "Let's Get Lost;" "Parker's Mood;" "All The Things You Are;" Cole Porter's "All Of You," among others. Excellent solo performances found in every song.

Curtis Stigers as instrumentalist and vocalist is at the top of his creativity in this memorable CD. BABY PLAYS AROUND is a winner, highly enjoyable, and something to listen to at any time.
