AllMusic Review by

Cornetist Warren Vache has never made an uninspired record, and all of his releases (particularly for Concord) are easily recommended to fans of lyrical straightahead jazz. On this particularly strong effort, Vache is joined by guitarist Cal Collins (a few songs are cornet-guitar duets), bassist Michael Moore and drummer Jake Hanna. Other than John Bunch's "It's Love In The Spring," all of the songs are veteran standards. Highlights include "I Hadn't Anyone Till You," "My Melancholy Baby," "Ida" and "If We Never Meet Again."
