AllMusic Review by

England's exemplary Ace Records label does its usual brilliant job of bringing the truly essential recordings of the late swing bluesman Charles Brown to a single CD. Driftin' & Dreamin' captures Brown with Johnny Moore's under-celebrated but no less influential Three Blazers. "Travelin' Blues" (later released as "Driftin' Blues, Pt. 2") is here, as are both parts of the "Warsaw Concerto," "So Long," and a gorgeous reading of Irving Berlin's "How Deep Is the Ocean." This is one packed-to-the-gills, laid-back treat.
