AllMusic Review by

This LP is a real obscurity but should be of great interest to George Benson fans. Although no personnel is listed on the album, it is assumed that Geoff Tyus is the pianist since that is a key instrument. His playing ranges from straight-ahead to a couple of originals that almost border on new age. However, the real reason to acquire the set is for the participation of guitarist George Benson on four of the seven selections. Benson sings "Ain't Misbehavin'" and stretches out on in fine fashion on "Cherokee," "My Favorite Things" and one of the two versions of "Monk's Dream" (both of which are mistakenly titled "In Walked Bud"). A real collector's item.
