The third 100 Gold Fingers tour of Japan featured ten different jazz pianists, all of whom are critically acclaimed veterans. Unlike the earlier 1990 volume, this two-disc set from 1993 was recorded at just one concert, with John Lewis serving as master of ceremonies as well as performing. With so many terrific pianists on hand, it seems unfair to designate a few highlights, but Kenny Barron's lush treatment of"You Don't Know What Love Is," Roger Kellaway's inventive take of "Over the Rainbow," Dave McKenna's driving "Night and Day," Tommy Flanagan's captivating "Someone to Watch Over Me," and Marian McPartland's tantalizing setting of "When Lights Are Low" are obvious picks. John Lewis and Hank Jones play duo pianos on "Mahnã de Carnaval" and "All the Things You Are," while they each have a solo feature as well. Bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Alan Dawson are added on some numbers. Beautifully recorded at Miel Parque Hall in Tokyo (a portion of the concert is also available on DVD), this release should be considered essential for fans of jazz piano.
