AllMusic Review by

This well-rounded LP features the very popular trumpeter in his early days with a quartet (featuring pianist Russ Freeman), a sextet (starring Bud Shank on baritone and valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer), and a septet (with altoist Herb Geller, tenor saxophonist Jack Montrose, and baritonist Bob Gordon). A perfect introduction to the music of the early Chet Baker.
