Obviously, piano is the driving force of the album, and the playing is one step beyond masterful. Speed, technical skill, originality; the display is impressive. Oleo is an exhibition in feel-good jazz with an upbeat swing. I don’t know if he had eighty eight keys, but if he did, you can bet they were all used. The album isn’t all finger snapping grooves though. Comparatively, this is a short album. You can listen to Bitches Brew all day, but A World of Piano! sits confidently with modest time lengths, only breaking six minutes twice and never hitting the eight minute mark. I’ve heard things like if you can like any jazz album, it’s Kind of Blue, or something to that effect. I found this album at the same time I started delving into Miles. You could insert this where Kind of Blue sits in that sentence and it would work. A World of Piano! can be just as sexy as it is a good time.
