AllMusic Review by

One of the last records on which Jonah Jones and his quartet follow his successful commercial formula of performing concise versions of standards, this LP differs from the previous ones in that it is comprised of four medleys. Nineteen songs are featured as either "Good Time Medley," "Swing Street Medley," "Duke Ellington Medley," or "Lover's Medley." Four of the selections are features for Andre Persiany and there are three vocals by Jones, but otherwise the music features the quartet swinging in their melodically pleasing fashion. Among the songs played are "When My Sugar Walks Down the Street," "Organ Grinder's Swing," "It Don't Mean a Thing," and "I'm Gettin' Sentimental Over You."
