Jazz Pianist Lenore Raphael...Swings hard

Jazz pianist Lenore Raphael is one of the best mainstreamers I have heard in a long time.
She can play the blues hard and then whip out a passionate ballad,followed by a very cool bebop tune.
Her style is somewhat like Oscar Peterson's. although I hear more Bud Powell, with those bebop lines and then I hear some Bill Evans, with a little George Shearing block chording in there for good measure.
Any CD by this artist would be excellent!!
