AllMusic Review by

Wes Montgomery's first recordings for Riverside were in a trio with organist Mel Rhyne, and ironically, his final albums for the struggling (and soon to be bankrupt) label were with Rhyne again. The brilliant guitarist is in fine form on these appealing tunes with the highlights including "Freddie the Freeloader," "Blues Riff," and "Moanin.'"
