Impossible to dislike, bare bones piano and double bass duo by the unrelated Greens. Five of the eleven songs are by Alec Wilder, whose classic I'll Be Around opens the album. Dave Green, a north London neighbour and fellow jazz enthusiast to the young Charlie Watts, is the UK's most revered bassist. The younger Barry is a cerebral swinger with a liking for unexpected harmonic turns. Recommended to anyone, especially those who like Hank Jones with Charlie Haden.
