"Four Jazz Portraits" is a set of miniatures for piano, which were inspired by the individual pianist style of Fats Waller, Bill Evans, Theolonius Monk and Albert Ammons, they are totally inspired and they capture the feel and style of each. To be honest, I just sat back and enjoyed this group of pieces, performed here by Philippa Harrison, for a personal indulgence."
