Musically Yours is a solo album by American jazz pianist Horace Parlan featuring performances recorded in 1979 and released on the Danish-based SteepleChase label.[1] The album consists mainly of jazz standards and show tunes with one original by Parlan. The same sessions also produced Parlan's album The Maestro.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars stating "Parlan tends to sound at his best in a trio where he can draw inspiration from his sidemen, so this often-sparse set of unaccompanied piano solos, despite some good moments, is not his most essential outing".[2]
