AllMusic Review by

This LP has four selections apiece from two different sessions. The earlier numbers match clarinetist Pete Fountain with trumpeter Al Hirt (these are among their first recordings), along with tenor saxophonist Eddie Miller and trombonist Abe Lincoln, in a hot septet. Among the tunes they perform are "March of the Bob Cats" and "Jazz Me Blues." In addition, there are four selections from Fountain as the only horn with a quartet and a quintet from 1961; vibraphonist Godfrey Hirsch and pianist Stan Wrightsman are among the supporting cast. Excellent Dixieland music performed with the usual Fountain spirit.
