This CD reissues one of pianist Dave McKenna's first recordings (which is from 1958, not 1995 as it mistakenly states on the back cover). On what was originally an Epic album, the young McKenna displays a strong technique but a musical personality that had not yet become distinctive. McKenna was surprisingly bop-oriented in the late '50s and was not yet utilizing powerful basslines, so this trio date with bassist John Drew and drummer Osie Johnson is not on the level of his Concords of the 1980s and '90s; only "'Way Down Yonder in New Orleans" gives hints of what.

Tenth song "Secret Love", The Piano Scene of Dave McKenna, 1958 This week again we are listening to Dave McKenna. The Piano Scene of Dave McKenna is a reissue of a 1958 album, one of the first of McKenna. I personnaly enjoy the bop influence, the sweet melodies and technicity of McKenna. John Drew (bassist) and Osie Johnson (drummer) also gave their touch to the record. Being a drummer, I can only but appreciate his simple use of the brushes which gives a nice rythm without covering McKenna's playing. Slightly more joyfull than his duo with Zoot Sims that I uploaded previously,.
