AllMusic Review by

Pianist Monty Alexander teams up with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Jeff Hamilton on this spirited and fairly definitive set. While the emphasis is on straightahead bop, Alexander plays soulfully on "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" and shows off his calypso roots on "Hold 'Em Joe"; other highlights include the ballad "Lost April," "I'm Walkin'" and "Tune Up."
