The pianist who has played with everyone doesn't record with no one else often enough; but on the rare occasion when Hank Jones does choose to work in the solo format, he invariably gives a lesson in what it means to be a complete pianist. Tiptoe Tapdance is no exception, and stands as a model of how to marry taste and technique, as well as a tribute to idols like Teddy Wilson and Art Tatum that never falls into mere imitation. A most enlightening aspect of this program is Jones's inclusion, among six classic standards, of his own arrangements of three spirituals. These moving performances offer an uncommonly deep view into the soul of Hank Jones.
