Introducing to American audiences a brilliant young German pianist, Chris Hopkins, whose swing-oriented and stride-inspired piano playing finds its roots in Earl "Fatha" Hines, Teddy Wilson and Jess Stacy, as well as in the stridemasters of Harlem, James P. Johnson, Fats Waller and Willie "The Lion" Smith. "Chris Hopkins," Dan Barrett enthuses, "is one of the most talented young piano players I´ve heard. I just flipped when I first heard him because he´s not yet out of his twenties and, although his playing reflects his study of the men who created jazz piano, he brings his own ideas to the table." -Producer´s Note
