It is difficult to believe in listening to Tributaries: Reflections on Tommy Flanagan, a solo recital by Sir Roland Hanna, that the pianist passed away just five months later. Hanna's tribute to the recently deceased Flanagan is so full of life, creativity, and swing. On the opening "Sea Changes" (a Flanagan composition), Hanna strides joyfully. Other highlights include a medium-tempo "Body and Soul," "Things Ain't What They Used to Be," "I Concentrate on You," and "Robbins' Nest" although every selection on this set is well worth hearing. There can be little doubt after hearing this highly recommended CD that Hanna was very much in his playing prime up until the end of his productive life. ~ Scott Yanow
