AllMusic Review by

The versatile pianist Lou Stein teams up with bassist Milt Hinton, drummer Connie Kay and (on four songs apiece) guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli and clarinetist Kenny Davern for a set of swing standards. The performers are concise (only "Honeysuckle Rose" exceeds four minutes) and relaxed, but there is plenty of variety in tempos and moods. Other than "Honeysuckle Rose," the highlights of the out-of-print LP include a tender "I'll Be Seeing You," "A Foggy Day," "What Is This Thing Called Love" and "Let's Face the Music and Dance."
