So interesting - and surprising - to find Pat Smythe mentioned in this context. I saw him several times in the early 1960s when he was with the Joe Harriott Quintet. IIRC he gave up a career as a lawyer to dedicate himself to jazz piano.

I've had lifetime love affair with Meredith D'Ambrosio's music as emotional art : warmth, depth, lyricism...

"Beware of spring" is the best vocal jazz album I've ever heard. I love the "paraphrase songs" and the smooth piano rendition.

Long live for Meredith !
