AllMusic Review by

Arne Domnerus, best-known as an altoist, sticks to clarinet on this set and often pays tribute to Benny Goodman without directly copying the King of Swing excessively. Joined by pianist Bengt Hallberg, bassist Georg Riedel and drummer Egil Johansen, Domnerus performs his "Fragment" (which is based on excerpts from a variety of Benny Goodman recordings) and nine standards including "Avalon," "Symphony" and "Sweet Georgia Brown." High-quality swing from one of the Swedish giants of jazz.
