AllMusic Review by

This release draws its material from five sessions that cornetist Wild Bill Davison recorded in Copenhagen with trombonist Papa Bue Jensen's Viking Jazz Band, not duplicating any music released elsewhere. Davison, who sings "A Cottage for Sale," clearly enjoyed playing with Jensen and his band (which also featured clarinetist Jorgen Svarre and occasionally tenor saxophonist Bent Jaedig) and he sounds quite inspired. Highpoints include "I'm Confessin," "I Never Knew," "Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives to Me" and "You're Lucky to Me."
