AllMusic Review by

The first of four CDs taken from an extensive concert in Binghamton, New York features trumpeter/vocalist De De Pierce and pianist/vocalist Billie Pierce in spirited and pretty good form. De De could be a bit primitive at times, but his sincerity and good ideas (and his ability to move quickly from one song to the next) are quite appealing, while Billie was a fine barrelhouse pianist who also could sing decently. This set is a fine example of their musical partnership; highlights include "Panama," "Hindustan," "High Society" and "Boogie Woogie."
