Review of Andrew Oliver’s ‘No Local stops’. By CLIVE DAVIS of The Times

If you loved the American pianist’s heroic YouTube journey — alongside clarinettist Dave Horniblow — through the Jelly Roll Morton songbook, you’ll be pleased to hear that The Pearls and Mamanita are part of this cultured solo set. James P Johnson’s Carolina Shout turns up as well, but Oliver — part of the spirited band the Dime Notes — has an ear for much rarer pieces too. A collection that blows away the cobwebs.
