AllMusic Review by

Three of the greatest baritone saxophonists of the post-1970 period teamed up for this jam-session date: Nick Brignola, Ronnie Cuber and Cecil Payne. With the assistance of pianist Walter Davis, Jr., bassist Walter Booker and drummer Jimmy Cobb, the trio of baritonists romp on a pair of Brignola originals (the basic "Nick Who's Blues" and the more complex "Busy B's"), "I'm Getting Sentimental over You" and two jazz standards. The music is often quite exciting (the horns battle each other to a draw) and is easily recommended to fans of the bebop baritone sax.
