AllMusic Review by

Originally a Statiras LP recorded in 1986, when this date was reissued as a CD in 1992, Eddie Higgins went back into the studio and recorded five solos (including his "Magnolia Rag") to increase the release's length. The bulk of the set is the earlier trio date with bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Bobby Rosengarden, which primarily sticks to warhorses that are often requested of Higgins and most other jazz pianists. Highlights include "St. Louis Blues," "A Hundred Years from Today," "Little Rock Getaway," "Indiana," and "Sweet Georgia Brown." A strong all-around set from the underrated mainstream pianist.
