AllMusic Review by

The Heath Brothers' fourth and final Columbia album has a couple of funky tracks ("Dreamin'" and "Use It, Don't Abuse It") with added personnel, but otherwise features the core of Jimmy Heath on tenor and soprano, bassist Percy Heath doubling on cello, keyboardist Stanley Cowell, guitarist Tony Purrone and drummer Akira Tana. Excellent music mostly based in hard bop, with fine versions of Thelonious Monk's "Ruby My Dear," Cowell's "Equipoise" and "Confirmation," but nothing that unusual occurs.
