‘Across a programme of swinging evergreen standards and ear-popping hard bop originals, Petrucciani’s playing is joyfully mesmerising. He knew his time was limited (he died in 1999 aged just 36 from disabling brittle bone disease), and that perhaps explains the intensity of performances like this.'
