AllMusic Review by

The soft-toned trumpeter Jon Eardley (who was playing with Gerry Mulligan's Sextet at the time) holds his own with tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims and altoist Phil Woods on this excellent straightahead septet set; also in the group are trombonist Milt Gold, pianist George Syran, bassist Teddy Kotick and drummer Nick Stabulas. The CD reissue (Eardley's third and final American session as a leader) features the excellent group on three of the trumpeter's originals, one apiece by Syran and Woods plus the standard "There's No You."
