AllMusic Review by

As with the first two LPs in Meritt's short-lived Potpourri series, this long out-of-print collector's LP contains 20 performances not previously released (mostly alternate takes) although about half of the music has reappeared on CD in different sets. The hour of music includes selections by Joe Venuti, Herman Chittison, the Three Peppers, Billy Kyle, the Gotham Stompers, James P. Johnson, Muggsy Spanier, Ella Fitgerald, Harry James, Bilie Holiday, Coleman Hawkins, Sidney Bechet and six numbers from Benny Carter in 1939.
