AllMusic Review by

These two musicians usually make any date that they're a part of a success and this rare duo date together is no exception. Jones' effortlessly swinging style is matched beautifully by the bassist's imaginative lines. The material is all very familiar, from the easygoing "Gone With the Wind" to a percolating "Wee" and the absolute show-stopping run through "I'll Remember April," which finds both men at a creative peak. It's a pity they didn't record a follow up to this very enjoyable session, recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's studio.
