John Bunch, an excellent mainstream pianist, is heard on this CD at the peak of his form. It consists of a dozen Kurt Weill compositions interpreted solo by Bunch; highlights include "The Alabama Song," "My Ship," "This Is New," and "Speak Lo. To fill out the CD, Bunch recorded five additional Weill songs in 1991 that did not appear on the original LP. Mixing together standards and complete obscurities (and surprisingly not including "Moritat," the famous "Mack the Knife" theme), Bunch also varied the moods and tempos

John Bunch (December 1, 1921 – March 30, 2010) was an American jazz pianist. Born and raised in Tipton, Indiana, a small farming community, he studied piano with George Johnson, a well-known Hoosier jazz pianist. By the age of 14 he was already playing with adult bands in central Indiana. During World War II he enlisted in the Air Corps and became a bombardier on a B17 Flying Fortress. He and his ten-man crew were transferred to combat duty in England, flying bombing missions over Germany.
