AllMusic Review by

Discussion in Percussion is a mediocre diversion. Musically it is very competent, it's in Mercury's Perfect Presence Sound audiophile series, and it shows off stereo channel separation and microphone placement -- the whole bit. But Simpson was probably too old and too long entrenched in session life to make it as great as it could have been. Few of the conversation-themed tunes are exciting, either as revived oldies or as adapted percussion romps. Highlights are an original (recorded earlier on a David Carroll album), "Open Discussion [In Percussion]," and "Hawaiian War Chant."
