How To Do Piano Trio Right. That could well be the sub-title of this cd. There's a lot of emotion packed in this cd as could be expected from an accompanist of Ella's for 12+ years. How do you like "Lady Be Good", as a ballad or at a fast tempo? Fortunately for all of us, we get both the ballad as an opener and a joyous uptempo closer with enough improvisation that it is evocative of Ella's singing. Flanagan was the master of ballads.
