AllMusic Review by

Mix 75 percent "after hours" mixed with 25 percent "Paris," and you have the kind of drink served here. With not an accordion in earshot, Lester guides a small jazz ensemble through some very serviceable charts, including a sleepy-eyed "Autumn Leaves" and a respectful "Alouette," surprisingly free of kitsch. Not as freakishly weird as his After Hours Middle East, but certainly not something that will gather the dust of an embarrassing purchase.
