Dick Wellstood, piano

Simple and straightforward it may seem, but this music is both reflective and stirring with the late Dick Wellstood captured in a scintillating program of yesterday's hits.
Surely the ghost of Fats Waller was reigning over this session as Dick plays many favorites that suit his stride piano style.

For many people this CD will be like a breath of fresh air when compared to the over produced music of the twenty-first century.
