AllMusic Review by

Portrait of Art Farmer is an excellent showcase for the trumpeter in the 1950s. Farmer is showcased with a quartet that also includes pianist Hank Jones, bassist Addison Farmer, and drummer Roy Haynes. The repertoire alternates veteran standards with lesser-known material, including three of Farmer's originals and George Russell's "Nita" along with a particularly strong version of Benny Golson's "Stablemates." An excellent outing. [Some reissues add a version of "Folks Who Live on the Hill" to the original program.]
