AllMusic Review by

The playing time on this LP is brief (under 32 minutes) but this is a particularly strong showcase for trumpeter Doc Cheatham (who was then 77). Cheatham is heard on four duets with guitarist Howard Alden, taking the vocals and playing some heated but relaxed trumpet. The other four selections feature him with an octet that also allocates a generous amount of solo space to bassist Milt Hinton.
