AllMusic Review by

This delightful session, which was recorded under strenuous circumstances, reunited pianist Johnny Guarnieri with the distinctive bassist Slam Stewart. Guitarist Jimmy Shirley and drummer Jackie Williams complete the quartet, which performs 11 well-known standards (including a medley of "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" and "San Francisco"), plus a pair of Guarnieri's swinging originals. Four selections are taken as unaccompanied solos, but it is the full-group numbers that are most colorful.
