AllMusic Review by

This set was chiefly notable for teaming together for the first time trumpeters Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw. Ostensibly a tribute to Clifford Brown, the sextet date (which also features Benny Golson on tenor, pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Cecil McBee and drummer Ben Riley) only has two songs actually played by Brown ("I'll Remember April" and "Jordu"), along with originals by Golson, Shaw and Hubbard ("Blues for Duane"). No matter; it is for the Hubbard-Shaw matchup that this straight-ahead outing is mostly recommended, as the two trumpeters provide most of the fireworks.
