AllMusic Review by

On this budget LP, Stan Getz is featured in four settings. Both "Jumpin' at the Woodside" and "Cherokee" find Getz and vibraphonist Lionel Hampton jamming at ferocious tempos while the ballads "It Never Entered My Mind" and "I Hadn't Anyone 'Til You" put the emphasis on Getz's beautiful tone. This set is rounded out by two numbers with trumpeter Roy Eldridge that originated from a session led by guitarist Herb Ellis. This good sampler of Verve sessions deserves to be reissued in full.
