AllMusic Review by

This LP has a grab bag of somewhat rare items, featuring clarinetist Benny Goodman as a sideman during the 1929-33 period. Included are dance sides with Ben Selvin's orchestra, a hot version of "Roll on Mississippi" and strong appearances with Mills Musical Clowns (a pickup group put together by Irving Mills) and Steve Washington's orchestra. Interesting pre-swing sides by the future King.
