AllMusic Review by

Recorded early in Shorty Rogers' comeback after 20 years of writing exclusively for the studios, this Choice release (put out by Bainbridge) features flugelhornist Shorty Rogers and altoist Bud Shank with Vic Lewis' 18-piece big band. Highlights of the somewhat obscure but swinging set include the four-part "Bud Shank" (composed by Shorty Rogers) and Bill Holman's "Shorty." An excellent outing for all concerned.
