AllMusic Review by

Trumpeter Buck Clayton and tenor saxophonist Buddy Tate, both Count Basie veterans, teamed up with the Basieish pianist Sir Charles Thompson, bassist Gene Ramey and drummer Mousie Alexander in 1960 for a set of three standards and a trio of Clayton originals. Although the musicians all play well on this mainstream set, few surprises or exciting moments occur and the performances are not as memorable as one would expect.
