AllMusic Review by

The music on this Collectables CD certainly lives up to its title. Vibraphonist Milt Jackson welcomes some of his best musical friends, including both veterans and a couple of younger greats including trumpeter Jon Faddis, trombonist J.J. Johnson, Jimmy Heath on tenor, pianist Cedar Walton, bassist John Clayton and drummer Mickey Roker. Together they perform nine classic songs from the bop era with the emphasis on medium and up-tempo workouts. Few surprises occur but the hard-swinging music largely meets one's expectations. [Bebop was also released with a bonus track.]
