AllMusic Review by

One of Thelonious Monk's rare appearances as a sideman is on this quartet set led by fl├╝gelhornist Clark Terry. With bassist Sam Jones and drummer Philly Joe Jones, Terry and pianist Monk perform a set that surprisingly has only one Monk song ("Let's Cool One"). Among the high points of this spirited, boppish date are Terry's "One Foot in the Gutter" and "Argentia."
