AllMusic Review by

This LP features the virtuosic New Orleans soprano-saxophonist at three different gigs in 1950. He leads a sextet with trumpeter Max Kaminsky and trombonist Wilbur DeParis (which is actually the bulk of this set) and is heard playing "The Mooche" in a quartet with trombonist Vic Dickenson and matching wits with trumpeter Wild Bill Davison on two standards. Spirited Dixieland with few surprises but containing its share of excitement.
