AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This quintet date matches together Bob Wilber (doubling on clarinet and tenor) with flugelhornist Clark Terry, pianist Dick Wellstood, bassist George Duvivier and drummer Panama Francis. Wilber's last album as a leader until 1969 consists of nine blues-oriented originals and was also issued (with the horn solos cut out) in the Music Minus One series. This Lp (if it can be found) is worth picking up but since Wilber was suffering a bit of an identity crisis at the time, the music is not really all that essential.
