AllMusic Review by

Veteran tenor saxophonist Billy Mitchell could not ask for a better rhythm section than he has here (pianist Barry Jones, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Walter Bolden). Mitchell was careful to pick out a superior program of songs highlighted by a few classic ballads (including "Unforgettable" which in 1978 had been largely forgotten) and Joe Henderson's "Recordame." The results are quite boppish and one of Mitchell's better recordings of the past 20 years.
