The veteran pianist based in Southern California, Llew Matthews is relavely unknown to international jazz fans, although he has played with jazz giants including Kenny Dorham and Jackie McLean, and accompanied great singers such as Lena Horne and Nancy Wilson. The Japanese label M&I has been working hard to rectify the situation, releasing a series of leader albums by the lyrical pianist whose style can be expressed by one word: beautiful.

A Certain Smile is an interesting concept album. As the subtitle suggests, Matthews and company play evergreen songs whose lyrics were written by Paul Francis Webster. Winner of multiple Acadey Awards and a GRAMMY, Webster wrote lyrics to many great songs working with composers such as Sammy Fain and Johnny Mandel. For this project, Matthews chose his long-time collaborator Stan Gilbert to play the bass. Drummer Harvey Mason is famous for his fusion work but he is equally comfortable in a more traditional jazz setting. On several tracks the great flutist Hubert Laws joins the band. A romantic and beautiful album!
