AllMusic Review by

Guitarist Herb Ellis was featured with two different rhythm sections at the 1979 Montreux Jazz Festival for three songs apiece: a quartet with pianist Ross Tompkins, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Jake Hanna and a trio with bassist Michael Moore and drummer Jeff Hamilton. Due to the brief playing time (under 32 minutes) and predictable nature of the straightahead music, this release is not essential but there are some fine versions of six standards, particularly "Love Walked In" and "There Will Never Be Another You."
