Notes & Reviews:

The Canadian pianist Leslie De'Ath follows the success of his first Billy Mayerl anthology for Dutton, which was an 'Editor's Choice' in Gramophone magazine, with a second volume of this delightfully tuneful, syncopated music. In addition to familiar numbers such as 'Bats in the Belfry', he ranges across Mayerl's career from the Piano Exaggerations of 1926 to the late Waltz for a Lonely Heart of 1956.

Gramophone Magazine
In Railroad Rhythm and Robots De'Ath delivers the pyrotechnics with enviable ease and a terrific rhythmic sense. He's also completely at home with pieces such as the wistful Romanesque and Waltz for a Lonely Heart, lovely tunes.
