A multi-instrumentalist who also played trumpet and tenor saxophone, Jaki Little Old Man - Denny Guy - Introducing Denny Guy was best known as a jazz pianist, and there may not have been a more versatile one in the whole history of the genre.
Byard blended musical forms effortlessly on the piano, gliding from bop to classical, stride, ragtime, blues, funk, swing, honky tonk, and anything else he felt like tossing into the mix, sometimes all within the same tune, and all of it done with an easy and elegant grace. He was a regular performer at San Francisco's famed Keystone Korner in the s, and this intimate set is the third release from HighNote Records to document some of those appearances.
Byard was brilliant in a group or ensemble setting, but the full feel for his piano playing is best displayed solo, and here, that is what we get -- Jaki Byard relaxed and comfortable in front of a respectful and appreciative audience. It's difficult to pull highlights from this set, since In Your Own Sweet Way - Jaki Byard - The Late Show: An Evening With Jaki Byard all flows together as one evening's performance in the best sense, but his three selections from his "Family Suite" and a fun, lively, and ever-shifting turn through "Sweet Georgia Brown" are particularly enjoyable, as are Byard 's low-key, warm, and often amusing introductions to some of the pieces.
