AllMusic Review by

If record companies won't cough up a few bucks for a nifty jazz record, roll your own -- which is, apparently, what Bob Cunningham, Bross Townshend, and Bernard "Pretty" Purdie did with this release, taking a few friends along for the ride through a selection of standards that starts with "Strike Up the Band" and finishes with "Mood Indigo." It's a delight from start to finish, with all the participants basically out for a good time. As always, it's a delight to hear Purdie play -- and he satisfies drumaholics with plenty of tight, smart solos.
