Judy Bailey has long been regarded as one of Australia's foremost jazz pianists. As one would expect, she is a formidable composer, and all the works included here are original compositions. The major work here is the delightful Children's Suite, full of gorgeous melodies and charm. The other works reveal Bailey's complete command of the jazz idiom. Her Waltzing Matilda is a view of this tune from various classical viewpoints, pointing to one of Bailey's compositional motivations, being to bring the classical and jazz idioms together.
