AllMusic Review by

After his quartet with Chet Baker broke up, baritonist Gerry Mulligan teamed up with valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, a perfect combination that yielded quite a few rewarding recordings. This LP finds this unit in particularly inventive form, stretching out on such songs as "Five Brothers," "Makin' Whoopee," "Bernie's Tune" and "Walkin' Shoes." Cool jazz at its best, played with plenty of wit and creativity.
