During a two-day period in 1957, pianist Don Ewell teamed up with clarinetist Darnell Howard, bassist Pops Foster, and drummer Minor Hall to record enough music for two albums, this one and Free 'N Easy. In addition to six fine quartet pieces (including "Everybody Loves My Baby" and "Keepin' out of Mischief Now"), there are four solo performances that fully showcase the underrated but talented New Orleans piano of Don Ewell. Easily recommended to fans of classic jazz.
