CD/LP/Track Review

More articles about Eddie Higgins
”...Higgins' style is relaxed and swinging, with an easy delicacy about it that reminds one of Hank Jones or Bill Evans.” --Herb Nolan, Down Beat

“...Brilliant, fully developed piano sets... plays piano with a master's touch... a dazzling dynamic range.” --Sam Lesner, Chicago Daily News

“...Hearing this piano for the first time, you would say 'good taste and a sensitive touch.' Like Hank Jones and the late Nat 'King' Cole, he's an orderly player whether romping with the blues or delineating a tender waltz.” --Owen Cordle, Raleigh News And Observer
